Every second Tuesday of the month, Currie Community Council are hosting a cafe for those living with dementia at the Gibson Craig Memorial Hall - a fantastic opportunity to get out and about, and have a great time.
We’re heading towards the Autumn and the next round of community grant decisions from the Edinburgh Neighbourhood Partnership. Meetings for the South West and Pentlands Community Grant Funds will take place during the first week in October.
The Neighbourhood Partnership Community Grants Fund is a small grants scheme (provided by Edinburgh Council).
Community Grants are awards of up to £5000 for start-up, or new one-off community projects. Money is distributed in different Neighbourhood Partnership areas across Edinburgh for projects that benefit those communities.
For more information, guidance notes, application forms, and conditions of funding please head to the Neighbourhood Partnership website.
We are pleased to say that the Pentlands Book Festival is back for 2018! The programme for this year has been finalised and can be found on the Festival website, along with more information about what the Festival is all about.
All Pentlands Book Festival events are FREE to attend (tickets required), so come along and hear from some fantastic local authors over the full twenty four day programme.
The Eric Liddell Centre are hosting a 'Living Well' event on the 1st November 2018, from 1-4pm (drop-in), focussed at providing information to over-65s about activities, support and services they can benefit from in the local area.
