Water of Leith Path clean up Sunday 28th February 10.30am – 1pm

(adapted from a post on Leith Links CC website)

Friends of the Water of Leith Basin

Hello

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.
Best wishes

Don Giles
