Both the South West and Pentlands are open for applications, the application form and guidance are available here: Community Grants Fund webpage
The next meetings of the two Funding Panels will be in December, so send applications in by the end of November.
Community Grants are aimed at community groups and third sector organisations for projects benefiting the different Neighbourhood areas of Edinburgh. They are one-off payments of up to £5000 to support work towards local community priorities, more details can be found in the South West Locality Improvement Plan.
Having secured the opening of the toilets, their use is now being monitored by the CEC, via electronic sensors (probably in the doors.) While it is agreed that footfall is only one criterion when measuring use and value, it is the one CEC officials keep quoting (apparently Colinton's loos have low usage figures - old data we suspect...). The toilets are open 10am to 6pm, so please, when you are in the village and need to spend a penny, make sure you spend it in our toilets!
