A fun day had by all

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhat a great turnout and great to meet so many people from the local community.  we reckon 300 people of all ages joined us and the youth workers from community education led by Callum McLeod.

This  event celebrated the upgrading of the play park in the tunnel area which Edinburgh and Lothian Greenspace Trust undertook last year on behalf of the City Council with funding from Biffa.

John Hedge inspired with his demonstration of Parkour skills, circus skills were tried by people young and old and prizes were handed out to the teams who completed the quest

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn excellent barbeque was served by Lesley, Jacqui and Maggie and we appreciate the contribution kindly provided by Tesco.

Thank you to all who helped to make this event a success.
