The cover features a shot of the Cumberland River, captured by Harold Kelly of Glasgow. On the inside page, Energy and Environment Cabinet Secretary Len Peters bids us all a final farewell as he relays his hopes and recounts the last eight years he has spent leading the cabinet. He also addresses the challenges that come, but he has no doubt, the cabinet will work together to address, ‘make improvements and seek out better and more cost effective ways of doing our work.’
