LeithChooses – more funds available!

Happy news –  £eith Chooses funds are growing, so more than 11 projects will get funded! The fund started with £46,106 from the Council’s Community Grant Fund, and then that was supplemented by a donation of £5,000 from the Port of Leith Housing Association (POLHA). And now we have had confirmation of a further donation of £5,000 to come from the Trams to Newhaven project. A huge thank you to both of these organisations for their generosity!

http://www.leithchooses.net/eith-chooses-fund-is-growing

So £56,106 is available to fund projects in Leith, with allocation to be decided by participatory budgeting. That is, the people of Leith choose which projects are funded. (This will be via online voting in January 2022.) Check out http://www.leithchooses.net for all the news!

LeithChooses 2021: 2021 Feedback Night (9 March) and questionnaire

LeithChooses is holding a feedback night on Tuesday 9 March (6pm) and running an online questionnaire. Details follow:

LeithChooses 2021 Feedback Night, 9 March 6pm.

The LeithChooses Steering Group is always looking for feedback from the community, after each participatory budgeting event.

You are warmly invited  to attend a ‘Feedback Night’ meeting, online. This will be on Tuesday 9th March at 6pm.

Each year, LeithChooses has found that although not many people can make it to the Feedback night, those that DO come always provide a tremendously valuable input. As this year has been so different, LeithChooses would especially like to hear from you about what you feel went well – and what didn’t – at LeithChooses 2021.

Sadly, there can be no cups of tea or Tunnocks tea cakes, but LeithChooses hope we can have an informal discussion and listen to your views. Do join!

Questionnaire

LeithChooses would like to glean your individual thoughts on the £eith Chooses 2021 experience through a questionnaire.

LeithChooses would appreciate if you would complete this questionnaire, and share it with anyone who has a view on the process.

Please click here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/leithch2021. It will be live for one month. LeithChooses is keen to refine and improve what it does so your thoughts are most welcome; LeithChooses does listen carefully!

Please do not hesitate to contact Caroline Lamond (Caroline.Lamond@edinburgh.gov.uk) if you have any questions about the feedback night or the survey; Caroline is happy to help.
