Christmas on the Corner 2018 will take place on Wednesday 12th December 2018 at the Dell Room, Colinton Parish Church 6pm - 8pm
Part of the existing gabion baskets have rotated in the burn, creating a gap between them and the footpath.
It is planned to replace the existing, failed gabion baskets, with a vegetated Envirolok system.
For these works to be carried out safely, the footpath will have to be closed and diverted for the duration of the works. Please see attached diversion for your information, as consulted with Edinburgh City Council and the Ministry of Defence.

Our public toilets, which are just 8 years old and needing very little maintenance, serve an elderly population as well as Bus drivers who stop at the nearby terminus should not be subject to Edinburgh Council's cutbacks. We will fight on to save them.
Follow our winter code. Heat, insulate and protect
Warmth offers the best protectionagainst frozen pipes, so when temperatures are low, leave your heating on a low setting, or set it to come on a couple of times a day.
Pipes don't like the cold - whether they are outdoor or indoor, metal or plastic,new or old. Making sure pipes and watertanks are properly insulated is one of the simplest, and cheapest, things you can do to help protect your property from the cold. Make sure that there are no gaps at bends, valves or fittings, and that you use suitable insulation material– a licensed plumber or your local DIY store should be able to give you advice.
If you have a water tank, it should be fitted with an insulation jacket or alternatively, the top and sides of thetank can be wrapped with suitable insulation material. Don’t place loft insulation under the tank, though, as this stops heat from the rooms below helping to keep the tank from freezing.
We're taking a break over the festive season, so there won't be a meeting in January.
The next meeting of Colinton Community Council will be on Tuesday 11th February 2019 at 7:30pm in the Function Hall at Colinton Bowling Club, 49A Redford Road
