Big Fun Day a Sunny Success!

Last Saturday’s Big Fun Day in the park was a great success, with beautiful weather and so many people turning out to enjoy the event! View the pictures below!

The event was brilliantly organized by Suzanne at Eero and Riley, but could not have succeeded without the generous donations of time, money, and goods from members of the community. Many thanks to all the volunteers, local businesses, and neighbors who helped make it such a special day, including:

HSS Hire, Seafield Road
Cornelius Beer & Wine
Dave Tullis Removals
Manna House
Bounce Around Bouncy Castle Hire
London Road Church
Abbeyhill Primary School
Leith Walk Primary School
Margaret Blackwood Sheltered Housing, Abbeyhill

Thank you all so much for your help, and welcome to all our new members who joined or renewed their membership at the event!

Exciting Plans for 2009/2010

After an enjoyable summer break, FoMSP had a very productive quarterly general meeting on 3rd September, during which we formulated our action plan for the coming year. We set dates for upcoming meetings and several community events. We are particularly excited about our next Fun Day on 26th September, as well as “Plant It!” and “Paint It!” events in October and March, so check out the Projects Page — and as always, let us know if you’re interested in volunteering/participating. We can always use the help, and all are welcome!

There were also a few changes in the structure of the committee.  After doing a fantastic job as Chair up to this point, Julienne Thurrott will now be focusing on working as a Funding Finder for the group. Vice-Chair Chris Rankin will assume the role of Chair in the interim until our next Annual General Meeting, and we will vote on a new Vice-Chair at the next quarterly meeting.
