Congratulations to Hibs

You may have heard about Hibs winning a trophy.
But this is a fantastic trophy and it’s been a long time since it’s been back to Easter Road.
There’s going to be disruption on the roads today as the people of Leith come out to show their support.

The official Hibs webpage had the following information.

Hibernian FC today told supporters that the Club would celebrate its stunning William Hill Scottish Cup triumph with the fans in the city tomorrow (Sunday 22 May). No events are planned for this evening.

The highlight tomorrow will be an open-top bus parade, due to set off at 3:30pm from the High Street following a celebratory reception being hosted by Lord Provost Donald Wilson for the club.

This event will be followed by the public victory parade, which will see team members board an open-top bus and travel from the High Street to Leith, culminating at Leith Links.

The route of the parade is: Lawnmarket – High Street – North Bridge – Princes Street – Leith Street – Picardy Place – Leith Walk – Constitution Street – Queen Charlotte Street – John’s Place – Duncan Place – Leith Links.

Plans for the parade were discussed and have been jointly approved by the Council, Police Scotland, emergency services, Hibernian Football Club and Lothian Buses. It is anticipated that there will be a degree of disruption to traffic while the event is ongoing, however every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum.

Should we have had more warning? Possibly but it would appear plans have been put in place months ago just for this fantastic occasion.
Hopefully it won’t take another 114 years to win the cup again

Let celebrate and hope the day goes well.
