Muirhouse Millennium Centre


Do you currently live in the Muirhouse, Pennywell, Salvesen or Redrow  residential areas.  Currently the “Muirhouse/Salvesen Community Council membership numbers have recently fallen below the level required to operate as a community council. Arrangements are being made for an interim election to take place and further information on this and how you can become a member of the community council will be made available in the near future”

We have received this invite from TRIM . Muirhouse & Salvesen Community Council also objected to this proposed development, so come along should be a good discussion.


As many will be aware TRIM is against the proposed development of Student accommodation at the old St Paul’s Church.
TRIM Board has agreed to meet with the developer and architect

This meeting will be

On Tuesday the 9th February
At 7pm

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) is reviewing hospital services for children in Lothian and they want to hear from you.

Help us by sharing your experiences to help shape the future of care in your area. The survey is anonymous and confidential and should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. The answers you give will help us find out how families use the services when children are unwell, and what arrangements in future will ensure they receive safe care as close to home as possible.
Please see below details of a survey being carried for NHS Lothian…..
