Wade in the Water

I walked with Antony Gormley yesterday as we discovered the '6 times' project in the Water of Leith Edinburgh. I have made a short video of the photos I took, love it or hate it, go and see them before you make up your mind. Antony was seeing the figures for the first time in situ as well as the press entourage. The first is at the GMA, then Bells Mills, Stockbridge, St Marks Park and Bonnington (sadly I had to get the bus before we saw the last in the docks in Leith). A very interesting day.

We have a guided walk happening this Sunday in the Stockbridge area. We will meet at 2.00pm at the old bridge down in Dean Village and walking to Cannonmills, we will also take in the delights of St Bernard Well. Booking is essential as numbers are limited.

Clean-up location for Sunday moves to Woodhall Mill Brae in Juniper Green 

This Sundays clean-up and Balsam pulling session has moved downstream. The start and end time are the same 10am - 12.30am. But the new meeting place is at the bottom of Woodhall Mill Brae.  1st right after you cross the bypass heading out of town on the Lanark Road (Barberton Crescent) and then right on to Woodhall Mill Brae. The road loops back round, under the bypass and brings you to the new housing estate by the river.   Follow the link to a map.

 As ever if you plan to join the Volunteer team let us know.
