LEITH WALK HUSTINGS – WHO SAID WHAT

Around 120 people filled the Thomas Morton Hall at Leith Theatre last night for an event billed as the Save Leith Walk (SLW) hustings. 

For a by-election on the brink of trams, budget cuts, and Brexit, the atmosphere was remarkably calm and good-natured.

This mood was fostered in part by a celebratory presentation at the start of the evening, which outlined highlights of the (so far successful) campaign to oppose Drum’s development at Stead’s Place, and pointed the way towards future community pro-activeness on planning and a range of other issues.
