Survey seeks responses: policing and safety

Lothian & Borders Police would like to know your views about policing, safety and what it is like to live in our local area. The survey is now available for completion online.

Please be assured that the information you provide will be treated with the strictest confidence and anonymity.   If you have any questions regarding the questionnaire please call 0131 311 3131 where a member of staff will be happy to help you.

Want to take a stall? Or help at the Meadows Festival on 2 and 3 June

The Meadows Festival is still taking applications for stallholders to trade at the long-running event, this year to be held on 2 & 3 June.  Interest has been high, but there are still a few spaces remaining. From arts and crafts, through vintage clothing and antiques, to books, charities, and children's items, the Festival attracts a broad range of different traders.   

If you're interested in taking a stall, head over to the stalls page and download a copy of the stalls form.  

The Festival organisers tell me they have an exciting line-up planned, but need some help to make it happen - maybe from you? Please visit the Volunteers page if you can give a couple of hours over the weekend to make the Festival run smoothly - the festival is entirely volunteer run!
