It was a successful night for many Leith-based community projects at £eith Chooses 2018 last week.

The Edinburgh Tool Library, Invisible Edinburgh, Fork in the Road and Art Outside the Police Box projects gained enough votes to fund all of their projects.

Leith Walk Police Box is looking forward to hosting an Easter weekend of pop ups.

On Saturday 31st March 2018 Edinburgh Tool Library will be at Leith Walk Police Box from 9.00am until 1.00pm.

Fork in the Road and Invisible Edinburgh Street Barber will be there in the afternoon – offering free haircuts to men who are encountering homelessness as well as providing some healthy food.

Project Leader Mo is bringing along Fork in the Road –  a mobile kitchen which will allow the group to teach people how to cook together.  The project began when Morvern Odling, Yannick Roels and Suraia Abud went to a designs future event in Madrid.

They used the time there to construct a mobile kitchen which can be towed by a bike. They will use it to simply turn up at various community events and engage people in their environment through meals and workshops.

This Saturday 31st March a Gastronomy Masters student will be at the Leith Walk Police Box cooking up a storm.

Every Sunday in April from 11.00am until 4.00pm enterprising book and typewriter aficionado, Tom Hodges, will host his book and typewriter pop up. We are told that Tom is book mad and one great piece of news is that as a result of his successful pop ups at Leith Walk police box he is setting up his own bookshop later this year.
