National Lottery Celebrate Fund

(LHNCC does not encourage gambling.)

The National Lottery says

The National Lottery Celebrate Fund is now open.

We’re offering you the chance to receive a grant of between £100 and £1,000 to fund your ideas during The National Lottery’s 25th birthday year.

If you have an idea that will bring people together, we’d love to hear from you. The fund is open to applications right now and will close at 2pm on Friday 6 December.

More details are on the NL website.

Community Assembly to discuss what you care about in Leith

(adapted from a communication from Save Leith Walk)

Save Leith Walk would like to invite you to a Community Assembly to discuss how you would like Leith run. This event will be a great opportunity to meet fellow Leithers and share what you value in your community and what you would like to improve. Together we can build momentum to take action in shaping our neighbourhood and take ownership.

Please book your place via Eventbrite.

The Electoral Reform Society will facilitate the event and help with bringing aspirations together. The information gathered on the day will be used to create an Action Plan for the local community, enabling the people of Leith to take a pro-active role in the development of their community. There will be plenty of time for discussion, networking and sharing of ideas.

They will also be joined by speakers from Living Rent and Planning Democracy.
