Friends of the Water of Leith Basin
I took a walk along the WoL path recently to look at the spring flowers we planted and was very disappointed by the amount of rubbish that has accumulated around Coalie Park and along the paths.
A joint cleanup has been arranged with the WoL Conservation trust for Sunday 28th February 10.30am – 1pm.
As usual we are meeting in Coalie Park – this link shows where it is: http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=326617&Y=676480&A=Y&Z=110
Hope to see you there.

The Friends of Pilrig Park are holding a tidy-up from 10.00am – 12.00pm on Sunday 21st February. If you are free please come along. It would be great to see you there and you can join in for as little or as long as you want, depending on how much time you have to spare. Click the graphic for more details:
This event is open to all with an interest in the path, even though it pretty much all falls into Leith Links CC’s area. Leith Central CC is very interested in any findings and outcomes.

A range of funding is available, from smaller grants of £50-£200 to larger grants of £500 – £2500.

Edinburgh Council has published an update on the kerbside recycling service that is being rolled out across the city. It appears to mostly affect ‘route 17’ and ward 11 (City Centre).
