Leith’s Public Assets

Not everyone can lay their hands on a paper copy of The Leither magazine, each month.

Here, therefore is a digital copy of an important article by Councillor Gordon Munro about the significant public assets that belong to Leith in law (Edinburgh Boundaries Extension and Tramways Act 1920).  For example, the old Town Hall, now the Police Station, and the libraries.

He suggests that Leithers need to be vigilant about protecting and maintaining possession of these public assets. Noted, Councillor Munro, noted!

New Bin Hubs

If any local residents in the Leith Links area have concerns about the new bin hubs being rolled out currently, please get in touch (contact@leithlinkscc.org.uk) as soon as possible.

At our recent meeting we were told by the Council official responsible that although rollout of the hubs had been delayed, they would be taking place over the next few weeks. You may see painting on the kerb showing locations, and chrome bars being installed (to corral the bins) and some old bins may disappear.

Unfortunately, there does not seem to have been communication with local residents, so some of you may be surprised or perturbed by the new set-up. Please let us know and we will pass on your concerns, and try to keep you ‘in the loop’ if we can get replies from the Council.

A New Years message

A New Year message from Gail Clapton, Vice Chairperson of Leith Links Community Council;

 

Sadly 2021 has been a difficult year for many people in Leith and beyond, and our thoughts go out to all those who have faced hardship and the loss of loved ones throughout the pandemic.

Unfortunately, moving into the New Year of 2022 sees us under similar restrictions as this time last year so perhaps not ‘the times they are a changing’ just yet.

Many have faced having to adapt to working from home with little or no direct interaction with their work colleagues other than online.  Not ideal but perhaps a safe approach. Similarly, Leith Links Community Council has continued with Zoom calls and it has been encouraging to see more people joining in and it would be good to see that participation continue whether online or in person, when that option returns to us.

It is to be hoped that as more medical advances are made we can meet the current setback as we have other challenges in the past.

So Leithers, lets Persevere, and head into 2022 with high hopes for a light at the end of this long tunnel.

With sincere good wishes to all for a happier and healthier New Year.

 

 

 

 

 

A festive message

A festive message from Jim Scanlon MBE, Chairperson of Leith Links Community Council;

 

Last Christmas we ended our message hoping that Christmas 2021 would be better.

You may not believe it but things have got better. Since last year the vaccine programme has been successful with most of the population double jabbed and have had or waiting to get the booster.

Unfortunately with this new wave of the virus we have to be careful when going out but if we’re sensible you can still enjoy Christmas with your family. Test test test before you meet up to protect yourself and others.

We are all having to learn to live with this virus to survive and have a reasonable life in this “new” normal.

Remember all those people who you all plan to phone and never do? Why not take the time to call one or two. I can guarantee they’ll appreciate it and you could feel better.

On behalf of the Community Council I hope you all have a peaceful and safe festive period.
