Set of keys found outside Sainsburys on Craighall Road

There has been a set of keys found outside the Sainsburys on Craighall Road last night. A kind Trinity resident has handed them in at Sainsburys and got in touch and sent on the image below so we can hopefully try and get them back to their rightful owner.

Looking forward to welcoming all to our meeting this evening at 7pm with Amanda Hatton, CEC Director of Education , Childrens Services & Criminal Justice. 

If you are planning to join us, we would encourage you to come to Inverleith St Serfs in person as, while we will try our best, we cannot guarantee good quality audio over Zoom from a busy hall.

Trinity Academy Rebuild Phase 2

The rebuilding of Trinity Academy is the biggest single investment in Trinity for very many years.  It will probably hold that record for many more to come.  Importantly, the plan is to redevelop the Academy as a “community school” – an asset for the whole of the community. 

So what does a “community school” do?  What ought it do?  How can the project team determine the needs of the wider community?  And how can you play a part in doing that?

On 13th June, Trinity Community Council will host Amanda Hatton, CEC Executive Director of Education and Children’s Services, who will answer these questions and more.  Most especially yours.  Amanda’s portfolio includes education, schools, early years, lifelong learning, libraries and community centres as well as social services for adults and children so she is uniquely well placed to discuss the potentials and the needs.

We would love to have your input.  Join us at 7pm in the Church Hall at Inverleith St Serf’s or from the comfort of your sofa via Zoom using this link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85358619269.

Heart of Newhaven May Newsletter

WELCOME TO YOUR MAY NEWSLETTER

First of all, a big thank you to everyone who contributed to our recent Crowdfunder campaign. This is to be put towards the costs of sprucing up the building once we get the keys. Lots of volunteers are, of course, already hard at work getting ready for the big day, making inventories and moving furniture, all essential logistical work. Soon, it really will be “all hands on deck” as we start with the paintbrushes and the trowels and we’ll be calling on even more help on the ground then.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t already given, the Crowdfunder is still open for donations.

Did you know however that you can gift to our charity at any time you like, or even on a regular basis. All you have to do is go to our website and follow the links. You can donate online directly to our bank or you can send a cheque if you prefer. All the details are on the website here

Now that the weather is improving, remember our big Picnic in the Park, to be held in Victoria Park on Sunday 19th June, between 12.30 and 3.30pm. Learn more on the Events board on our Home Page here

Inspired by the Eden Project’s Big Lunch, this is being held in collaboration with the Friends of Victoria Park and the Victoria Park Allotment Holders. Bring a picnic and enjoy meeting your neighbours. Take part in the fun races and games or take advantage of the plants and books swap tables. There will even be an (optional) fancy dress competition for children and pets – with prizes!

Finally, we are due to hold our next AGM shortly, probably towards the end of June. If you’ve not become a member, consider doing so now, before the meeting, so that you have the right to vote. There are two types of membership depending on where you live and you can find out all about it on the Join Us page here.

Remember to check the website and our social media regularly for updates and blogs. Links on our Contact page here
