Backsands busy despite the weather

Fisherrow Waterfront Group -

As part of our campaign to have the backsands designated as a Bathing Beach by SEPA the Waterfront group organised a count of people using the area on Sunday 8th July.

Despite the clouds (and a maximum temperature of only 16) the beach and promenade were still drawing visitors all day.

Between 9am and 4:30pm a total of 459 people used the Fisherrow Backsands beach and promenade.

123 of those were actually down on the sand - with some even in the water!

Thanks to group members Fiona, Aileen, Jan, Dennis, Kaela, Betty and Clive for helping with the count.

Calling all willing weeders! If you've been down to our fledgling community veg garden at the Rennie Bridge, you'll see that it's taking shape. The terracing has just about survived the torrential downpours, and there's plenty of new planting. We need more help though. A few greenfingers to keep the weeds at bay.
Not as easy as you might think because we're also cultivating green manure, right amongst the weeds. So you may need a bit of a talk through.
If you can help in any way, let us know. We're looking for regular help AND potterers (is that a word?) So please leave a comment here, or email us at transitionmusselburgh@gmail.com.

Community Garden - a possibility in Musselburgh East

Musselburgh.Info -

4 students from Edinburgh University recently carried out local consultation on behalf of Musselburgh Transition Toun, on the need for a community garden at the back of Musselburgh East Community Learning Centre (MECLC). This snapshot presents the findings from the consultations which were held over a 6 week period from mid April to June 2012.

The group hopes to take forward the positive findings from this research and will be seeking funding and support to develop the garden.

Musselburgh-based Volunteer Centre East Lothian is currently developing a scheme whereby residents of East Lothian with garden property that they can no longer manage, can get assistance with such gardens through a number of initiatives.

It's a great idea, we've talked about it in Transition meetings so we're delighted to hear that our neighbours at VCEL are already on the case.

Especially interesting if you're still waiting on that allotment! Get in touch with VCEL on North High Street.

Border Trophy 10′s 18th and 20th June – Kelso and Gala

Musselburgh RCC -

The revived Border Trophy TT series took place on Monday 18th and Wednesday 20th June at Kelso and Galashiels respectively.  These are open events but times count towards the Border Trophy between the Kelso and Gala clubs.  They are hoping to extend the events to include other Border clubs and keep them as open events as well.  The kelso course was from Kelso to a dead turn at the far end of Birgham and return to Kelso.  23:41 for me and first time on what was a good course in fine countryside.  The Gala course on the Wednesday was the usual Melrose by-pass and I posted a 23:40 this time – consistent if anything!.  Andy Matheson was the other rider from the club and he was round in 23:26.  Good things happening in the Borders at the moment and they are blessed with decent courses.  Full results on the Gala CC web site http://www.galacc.co.uk/
