That this House applauds the installation of ten bronzed plaques commemorating significant figures from Dundee's past into flagstones forming Discovery Walk, a centrepiece of Dundee's waterfront regeneration; congratulates the team who supported the idea and in particular the project originator Kelly Marr and the artist who designed the plaques, Suzanne Scott; pays tribute to those people from the city's history whose achievements have been recognised in this unique tribute, namely Mary Ann Baxter, Professor Margaret Fairlie, D'Arcy Thompson, Dr James Riley, Sir James Alfred Ewing, Professor Walter Spear, Professor Peter Le Comber, Mary Lily Walker, R D Low and Professor Geoffrey Dutton; commends the Discovery Walk Champions who helped make the vision possible including NCR, BHP Comics, the University of Dundee, Cyclacel, GA Engineering, Caledonia Housing Association, Axis-Shield, 4 J Studios and iArt Supplies; and praises the vision of the steering group in capturing the spirit of these people from Dundee’s past and embedding it permanently in the future of the city.
