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 Transition Toun - Facebook -

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/

East Beach Clean Up

Fisherrow Waterfront Group -

On Wedensday 20th June a team of 40 volunteers from Lloyds TSB took part in a clean up of the east beach at Fisherrow, including recording the rubbish found as part of a Marine Conservation Society 'Beachwatch' survey.

Check out what a great job they have done!

Designating the Backsands as a Bathing beach

Fisherrow Waterfront Group -

The Fisherrow Waterfront Group, working with officers from East Lothian Council , have submitted an application to SEPA (Scottish Environmental Protection Agency) to  have Fisherrow Sands (the Back Sands) officially designated as a bathing beach. This will mean that the water quality at the beach will be regularly monitored.

To have the beach registered as a Bathing Beach we will need to provide good information about the number of beach users, both in and around the water, throughout the bathing season. This is usually in the form of photographic evidence of people in the water or a survey of user numbers.

Throughout the summer months therefore group members and ELC officers will be taking photos of the Beach in times of heavy use and performing counts of the numbers using facilities in the area.

We are also looking for members of the public to send us photos showing the beach in heavy use – (digital photos need to be time and date stamped for us to be able to use them). If you have any photos you would be willing to share please send them to musselburghLCP@eastlothian.gov.uk

Its Official – Fisherrow Waterfront Group

Fisherrow Waterfront Group -

At our meeting in June the Fisherrow Waterfront Group adopted a constitution  - making us a Scottish Incorporated Organisation eligible to apply for charitable status (which we will be doing shortly).

This will enable us to apply for funding to help enhance the appearance and amenity of the Waterfront area.

Sowing the seeds for a community garden plan in Musselburgh

Musselburgh Transition Toun -

Residents in Musselburgh are being consulted on plans to create a community garden.

A series of meetings will be taking place over the coming week to help gauge public support for the proposal.

A site has already been identified at the rear of Musselburgh East Community Learning Centre, which could accommodate the development without impacting on existing skatepark and sports facilities.

The project is being led by members of the Musselburgh Transition Town group, who have enlisted the help of students at Edinburgh University to undertake a feasibility study.

All households in the Wimpey area of the town will receive a questionnaire, complete with a pre-paid return envelope, to allow them to voice their opinions and concerns.
