135 Kings Place Re-imagined
For months, there has been a lot of heated debate on assorted online forums about Kings Place. In recent years, it has turned into a completely unregulated car and caravan park which has caused occasional distress to local residents. This week, two things have taken place. The first is a consultation from Portobello Community Council, asking our opinion on what changes (if any) should be made. The second is an appeal for ideas about what the area could look like from the new Facebook page – Kings Place Re-imagined.Follow this link to complete the consultationhttp://www.portobellocc.org/pccpn/2019/08/12/kings-place-parking-consultation/
134 Swarming Bees
What do you do if a swarm of bees lands in your garden? This week’s episode is something of a public information feature because that’s exactly what happened in the garden of Porty Podcast Producer, David Calder. He didn’t notice it at first – but his neighbour did! The family next door have two boys who love playing football and other ball games. They were afraid that a ball could land in the swarm – and were rather worried about what could happen then.https://www.edinburghbeekeepers.org.uk/swarms
133 Portobello Golf Course
An online campaign has been launched to persuade the people of Portobello to use the golf course. Didn’t know Porty had a golf course? Well. it was once a very popular facility – the Sir Harry Lauder Championship was played here until three or four years ago. But a year ago, demand for golf on this small, 9-hole course had fallen so much that Edinburgh Leisure, who manage it, announced plans for it to close. The ground would remain in recreational use but the golf course as we know it would have to go.An action committee was set up to try to persuade the powers-that-be to change their minds, but thus far to no avail. Part of them problem appears to be that all-too-few people know the course is there – even in Portobello itself. There are no sign posts to advertise its presence; and it seems as if virtually no money has been spent on marketing. Porty Podcast Producer, David Calder, went to find out more.
