Edinburgh Canal festival Sat 21st June

2 June 2014

If you want a great day out, come along to this local, not for profit, enjoyable family event when anything that can float (well almost) will be there. If you're feeling handy and have some unused milk cartons, oil cans or arm bands there's still time to make a raft!

21 April 2014

At our AGM there was a lot of interest in "Meanwhile Developments" - temporary uses for the site. We want to encourage a buzzing hive of activity such as regular markets, small social enterprises, workshops, stalls, pop up cafes, tool library, walking groups, play areas for children and so on. If this is successful it will have an impact on how this neighbourhood develops as the building start to grow. Contact us if you are interested

Public Consultation of Masterplan Thurs 27th March 12 - 8pm Central Halls Tollcross

"Coming Alive!" event and AGM Thursday 13th March 6pm Viewforth Church

13 February 2014

In the next month the hoardings will be coming down around the site. Steps will enable us to get down onto it and pathways will be constructed along the same lines as the eventual ways through the development.

Building will not be starting for a while and so “in the meantime” actions are being planned.

After the success of the Grove Community Garden on Springside, a Grove 2 is planned which will include small trees and saplings  - to start to green the site. Other ideas include the return of the Circus in summer as part of the Festival, an Open Air cinema, a Vintage monthly market and possible shipping containers for pop up accommodation for local craftspeople, boat builders, artists, social enterprises, small scale stalls, woodworkers, jewellers, upholsterers, machine shops, bakers,etc. Come along to find out more and add your ideas. All Welcome.  

Thursday 13th March 6 - 8 pm, Viewforth Church.
