As always PEP’s Summer Fayre was held in the community gardens opposite the offices at 3 West Pilton Park. The fayre was opened by manager Helen Tait and 5 band members from the Davidson Mains & District Pipe band. 4 pipers and a drummer started off the proceedings and played several rousing tunes expertly and professionally. The BBQ was manned by volunteers and produced a steady stream of food and drink for everyone to enjoy.
There were stalls for fundraising or giving out information; these included the Bright Sparks Nursery, The Edinburgh North West Carers, the Weekend Resource, the Neighbourhood Group, PEP Pets, Scottish Gas and Tony’s Tombola. Leanne from the Pilton Community Health Project also kept people busy with some seated exercise in the centre of the gardens. Emily also came along and provided more fun for the kids (and some adults too) with fantastic face painting.
A huge thank you to Clare and the Davidson Mains & District Pipe Bank, Leanne for the seated exercise, Emily for the face painting, Scottish Gas for volunteering and fundraising and all the other volunteers and organisations who were able to come along on the day and make it such a wonderful success. Thank you also to Morrison’s Ferry Road and the Edinburgh Cyrenians for their continued support.
