Christmas is starting in Gorgie Dalry - it's official!

People may remember that last years Christmas celebrations including the Lights Switch on Ceremony were cancelled due to bad weather. Fingers crossed for this year then as the arrangements have all been made. Full details at the GD website. A lot of work has once again gone into this weekend and special thanks must go to the Gorgie Dalry Community Council, the City of Edinburgh Council (especially Natalie Russell the Neighbourhood Coordinator), The Gorgie War Memorial Hall, the Gorgie City Farm, Pol Steele and 'the GD' website and  the Gorgie Parish Church for pitching in. Financial contributions from the City of Edinburgh Council, the Gorgie Dalry Community Council, Sainsbury's and Scotmid. A true all round local community event. All that remains is for the community to come along. If you are there on the Saturday you might not see me but I will definitely see you - I will be in disguise ;-) .

Christmas is Coming!

Due partly to the lack of the community newspapers I think it is vital to the health of an area to use all possible means of getting what is happening locally out there!  I say this in case anyone thinks it is trivial to put these things on my blog.  I make no apology for it however.

At Broomhouse I would recommend you try the Christmas lunch...

Christmas lunches at the Crescent Kitchen in the Broomhouse Centre.
Christmas Lunches are available on Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th, Wednesday 7th, Thursday 8th and Friday 9th and Tuesday 13th or Friday 17th December. Pre-booked Lunches only. Cost £7.00 or Children’s Christmas Lunch £4.00.

The Christmas lunch menu is aimed at local people, groups and business and is very reasonably priced. All lunches are pre-booked only and there is a menu option for groups and organisations who would like to organise their own event in a venue of their choice.
