Thanks to everyone who turned out on Saturday to help give a quick clean to Victoria Park, especially the little people who were all very enthusiatic! In just over an hour and half, we collected about 13 bags of rubbish from the park.
This was the first time that we’d organised a clean-up in Victoria Park, and needless to say we had the obligatory discussions over whether Victoria Park was actually in Leith. We think it probably is.
We’ve got two more clean-ups planned. Next Saturday, we’re working with Leith Links Community Council to clean-up Leith Links. (More details here).
And, on the 6th of November, we’re working with Leith Central Community Council to clean-up Pilrig Park (More details here).
Given that it’s likely to have got a bit cooler by then, you’ll be delighted to know that we’ve got the funding together to pay Out of the Blue to come to the parks on their marvelous trike to provide hot soup and filled rolls for everyone who takes part in the Leith Links and Pilrig Park clean-ups.
Funding for these events has come from Leith Central Community Council, Leith Links Community Council and Vegware. We’re most grateful to all of these organisations for their support.
