Volunteering in the city
The Slab Boys are coming!
The Big Dinner
The Big Screen at Boda Bar
Today is a big day at the City Chambers when the council will meet to discuss and approve the new budget for the coming financial year.
Some believe that cuts will be made to Edinburgh Leisure, although it is certainly not in the plans published by the coalition. You can read our article on the coalition plans here.
The council have a plan to reorganise the council in such a way that further savings will be made and they have assured anyone who would listen that frontline services will be protected.
So what will happen today? You can follow the proceedings here live.
Today you could do something good for your community by volunteering in the city. Don’t know where to start? Then begin here with the Volunteer in Edinburgh website.
There are many opportunities with a diverse range of organisations.
