Coronavirus and Leith Central

There’s not much we can add to government advice and rulings, but we want to reiterate;

  1. Stay at home. Protect the NHS.

Please remain safe and vigilant when helping, particularly of people’s information and personal safety. Leith Central Community Council are not in a position to formally endorse any one group, and encourage individuals to protect themselves and each other
