The History of Leith

September 28, 2004

Protest Petition!

In response to my request for support for the parents of St Mary’s, the Links Community Council and the people of Leith. I have received the following from ex pats. However I need a lot more if we are to make a difference. Please let me know what you think. Your opinion is important.

“PLANS to build a waste transfer facility just a few hundred yards from a primary school have prompted a barrage of protests from concerned parents”

Dear John

Thank you for that. I need as many comments like this for a public meeting tomorrow night about this if we wish to put a stop to this.

Dear Anne

With the moral support of expats like yourself and the people of Leith we can win. Thank you for your kindness and understanding I was starting to think there was nobody out there that cared. Thank you and God bless.

Not sure what, if anything, I can do about this asI now live in Colorado but do not let City Hall have any peace until this is resolved. I grew up on the opposite side of St Marks Park from the Poderhall facility. It was not old in those daysso was surprised to hear of its closure though from what I have read it definitely should have been closed.. Back in the 50s we were not so aware of environmental issues. Which is a real pity. Anyway all the best in your efforts especially the parents at St Marys.
