Maureen Child Update 22 December 2020

Posted on: December 22nd, 2020


Dear Al

Last Update of 2020. Last week, I took part in a Living Streets virtual event. Find out more here – https://youtu.be/_owjs7clKfk


Once this season is all over, you need to know about refuse collection, particularly recycling.  If your normal collection date is Friday, that affects your household more this year.  https://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/bins-recycling/christmas-new-year-bin-collection-dates


David Calder’s Porty Podcast looks back on some old year!  Worth a listen as always: https://www.buzzsprout.com/71622/6913133


Fantastic to see ArtWalk Porty taking in Craigmillar in the new year: https://www.artwalkporty.co.uk/craigmillar-and-communities-walking-residency.html


Nice to see a great piece on our intrepid sea swimmers: https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/18951978.swimming-sewage-wild-swimmers-cleaning-shores/


Whatever your Christmas is like, there are families and friendship groups that will be finding it much, much harder than mine.  Remember this one and do give whatever you can to one or other of the causes close to Heather Stronach’s heart:  https://www.justgiving.com/team/heather-stronach?fbclid=IwAR3mDlqCr8EQKeFIrLTRK2M1ZdLPfYHSRRxJKxfWt_F5DQMeZU0j-PJ5564


That’s me signing off for 2020 and wishing you the very best Christmas and New Year you can possibly manage.  Stay safe and well and see you all in 2021, I hope!
