Last month I was contacted by a local resident regarding the lack of putting facilities in North Edinburgh Parks.Putting greens have disappeared from Victoria Park and Powderhall. At the time I was happy to report that the putting green at the home of golf was still in position on one of the unused bowling greens. It could be better but a least it’s there or rather was there.
Edinburgh Leisure did have a sign up advertising open times on the door of the old changing rooms which has now been removed and no mention of putting is on their webpage. Here’s a reminder for Edinburgh Leisure of what it did say:
Communities across Edinburgh are being urged to submit their applications to the City of Edinburgh Council for a Waste Action Grant as the deadline fast approaches.
Both small and large grants are available to fund eco-friendly projects that will encourage more people in the Capital to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Environmentally conscious householders, community groups, youth groups and schools are all being urged to submit an application for funding by Thursday 31st July.
A range of funding is available, from smaller grants of £50-£200 to larger grants of £500 – £2500.
