Old Town Lights Up

Its that time of year again and tomorrow the Edinburgh Winter festival is launched with Princes St's lighting up event.
The switch on of the festive lights in the Canongate will take place on Wednesday 30th November at 6pm at Chessel's Court.

So why not come along and join local residents for some christmas cheer!
Step away from the mobbed shopping centres and commercial activity and gather with the local community to welcome in the yuletide.

Along with live performances from Candice, enjoy a little mulled wine or mincepie and even partake in a little carol singing as we celebrate lighting up Edinburgh’s old town.

So remember....
**30th NOVEMBER**

Council calling for residents views!

The Council is embarking on a project looking at the Royal Mile. This is one of the strands that emerged from the consultation process which was a key part of the Southern Arc Area Development Framework. The purpose of the study is to see if they can collectively identify improvements to the street – how it is used and managed, how the traffic flows, how the residents and business use it, etc.  

It is very important that they understand the key issues for all the different groups who have an involvement with the street. They also need to ensure that they have identified and gathered all relevant background information from those who have real knowledge of the place

Residents in and around the Royal Mile are an important group whose views we wish to collect, and they would like to invite the local community and residents’ groups and their members to participate in a focus group, on Tuesday 8th November

The focus group will run from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, and will be held at the Council offices, Waverley Court, on East Market Street.  If you live in or around the Royal Mile (from the castle to Abbeyhill) please help ensure residents views are heard and contact Alison Morris at CEC to book a place.
