The Community Policing Team in South West Edinburgh are holding a "Doorstep Crime" initiative from 14/05-27/05/18 as this is the time where the bogus workmen are out and about. We should all be vigilant!
In addition to weekly Police surgeries at Oxgangs Library between 1700 - 1800,
there is also a new surgery held by local community officers at Morrisons Café at Hunter's Tryst, every 3rd Friday, between 1130 - 1230. The dates for the Morrisons Surgeries in 2018 are as follows:-
18th May, 8th June, 29th June, 20th July, 10th August, 31st August, 21st September, 12th October, 2nd November, 23rd November, 14th December
In February 2018 an early evening, 8pm, Monday to Saturday, No 10 service from Princes Street to Bonaly was introduced.
We need to ensure this service is regularly used if we wish to retain it. It is a ‘hail and ride’ service which can be boarded anywhere from the Bonaly Corner Shop to the top of Laverockdale Crescent, thereafter there is a stop on aveockdale Crescent.
If this service is a success and there is community support for extending it, the Community Council could lobby for:
- three truly additional Bonaly evening services, Monday to Saturday at 21.00; 22.00; and 23.00
The proposed additional services could also include:
- a loop around Bonaly to Torphin on some or all of the proposed evening services –possibly on the last service of the evening?
We can only lobby for this with community support!
So---what do you think?
