Your Community Council has agreed to promote the idea of decorative Christmas lighting in the village centre and is seeking local opinion and hopes to set up a Steering Group.
Letters have gone to local traders and local organisations and to all E Newsletter subscribers, asking for views, support and volunteers for the Steering Group.
So far we’ve had very encouraging responses overall- and even some offers of cash!
We’d now like to get views from as many people as possible and would like to know:
- Your views and comments on the project
- If you are willing to become a member of the steering group
- If you are willing to contribute money directly
- If you are willing to take part in fund-raising
We look forward to hearing from you!
Your Community Council is keeping a close eye on Currie Star Football Club’s (CSFC) and Edinburgh Cricket's proposals for Campbell Park. We want to ensure that there is a full community consultation on this important issue, either a public meeting and/or a wide ranging leaflet drop to all of Colinton.
We have written to our City Councillors expressing our concerns over the lack of community consultation so far; and lobbying for their support in ensuring full consultation takes place soon.

Can you help?
The Colinton Tunnel project aims to turn a dark and slightly forbidding former railway tunnel into a bright, safe and welcoming home for a major mural; celebrating the industrial, social, artistic and literary history of our community. We intend to create a bright, clean, well-lit, safe place that will make people smile. Our website (link & QR below) tells you about it.
We are now a Scottish Charity – SC048476 - regulated by the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). Our charitable status means that we can now begin fundraising, and we’re looking for help to do that.
Do you have experience and skills that have successfully obtained funding from grant-making bodies, trusts or other sources? Would you like to see this exciting project achieve its full potential? If so, we could use your help.
The new Service 400 was launched on 29th July 2018, connecting Edinburgh Airport with Fort Kinnaird via Oxgangs, Colinton and the Gyle, introducing vital links for customers from the south east and south west of the city directly to the airport. This service will replace the current service 18. Normal fares to Ingliston Park & Ride will apply.
