Bon Jovi

Just back from the Bon Jovi Concert in Murrayfield - fantastic! Also there was something about it being a short walk to the house that put the icing on the cake! Having something so immense on your doorstep just sums up the joys of living in Edinburgh. The rain held off for the duration of the concert but I think even Bon Jovi was genuinely surprised at the ability of the crowd to turn bad weather into a momentous occasion. Definitely one to remember.

Gorgie Dalry Gala Day!

Yes - last week it was 'Altogether in the Park' and this weekend it's the Gorgie Dalry Gala Day! Plenty going on in the area. The trouble is due to the shortness of volunteers the advertising can often be a problem so not enough local people know it's on.
The Gala Day starts at 12 on Saturday (11th June) and runs till 4:30pm at Murieston Park off Dalry Rd.. For details of the program see STV Local. Something for the whole family from the Tricky Ricky Magic Show to Zumba Fitness. Come along an support your local area or just come and meet new people. Lots of stalls, Groups and organisations (I'll be there of course!).

All Together in the Park

A big weekend for Broomhouse, Sighthill, Parkhead, Wester Hailes and beyond - the annual 'All Together in the Park'. It is in Sighthill Park on Saturday (4th June) from 11am till 4pm. Alistair Darling is opening it at 11. I'm going along - should be good! Something for everybody. Local groups, organisations, stalls, entertainment etc. If you are new to the area or just want something fun for all the family to do why not come along.
