(adapted from an email from Friends of Pilrig Park)
The Friends of Pilrig Park will be holding a public meeting on Monday, 11th April from 6.00-7.30pm at the McDonald Road Library. As always, FoPP is keen to hear your ideas and suggestions about how to continue to improve the park, so please do come along.
Over the last few months FoPP received a lot of comments about the state of the small play park (in particular since the slide was removed after it was deemed unsafe by City of Edinburgh Council). The Council have since said that they will not be replacing this equipment, so it seems unlikely that any further money will be spent on upgrading the play park in the near future.
It would therefore seem to be a good time to pull together a group of people to look for alternative funding to improve the small play. Please come along to the meeting if you are able to help in any way – whether this be with advice, fundraising, project management, planning applications etc… If you can’t make the meeting but can still offer your help, please email and let us know.
Also, FoPP is still looking for a Secretary. If you can spare some time (no more than a few hours a month) please get in touch.
