SEAFIELD SEWAGE WORKS STINK

Over the past few weeks there has been an increase in odour emissions from Seafield. It’s disgusting and ruins local residents’ enjoyment of this good spell of weather. I’m disappointed to report that Veolia have been slow to react to public concerns and if SEPA and City of Edinburgh Council have taken any action they haven’t communicated that to the community council or local residents association who have been working hard on your behalf for many years. Rob Kirkwood from Leith Links Residents Association and I will be meeting with Ben MacPherson MSP on Monday evening to raise our concerns. I will then give you a full update on where we go from here.

LEITH LINKS PLAY PARK – What do YOU think?

Lovely Leith Links is YOUR park! This is the final chance for you  – and the kids, of course! – to have your say on the forthcoming upgrade of the play park on Leith Links. Please take time to consider the alternative proposed designs, and feed back your views, either in person at the local sessions next week (see poster below) or online. Click here to access the designs and to vote for your favourite
It’s not just ‘either/or’ – it may be possible to mix & match across the different designs, apparently, so get in there quick!

 It is difficult to see all the small details in the three different designs from the pictures, but  you can download them as three separate pdfs from the web site. Ideally, you could download and study the details on line and form your opinions,  and also go in to the library or community centre in person to ask questions and have a chat with the guys. Voting must be completed by 28th May.

Greener Leith – Children’s Orchard pruning event

Greener Leith is having a pruning event at the Children’s Orchard on Sat 4th Feb from 10:30am to 12.30pm with Ben Dell from Edinburgh Botanical Gardens. This is a great opportunity for those who want to get some hands-on experience in pruning and learn from an expert, so please do come along if you are interested. There will be a general litter clean-up and mulching to be done as well, so activities for everyone even if you are not interested in pruning.

Greener Leith will provide all tools and equipment, but if you have your own secateurs, please do bring them along. We will be providing soup and sandwiches as a reward for braving the cold!
