Family Fun – this Saturday 18th March


Changeworks are organising a free afternoon of family-friendly fun and games in the Granton Medway BMX track on Saturday 18th March from 2 until 6pm to celebrate the champion work of the residents increasing their recycling and keeping the street clean and tidy. The event is open to Granton Medway residents and the North Edinburgh community. Free food, drinks and activities for all the family – we hope to see you there, rain or shine!


Activities will include:

  • Pedal powering a tasty smoothie on our smoothie bike
  • Joining the community litter pick and help tidy up the shared spaces (3pm)
  • Making a wildflower seed bomb and planting it in the shared green space (4pm)
  • Bringing a dish to share in our community potluck (4-6pm)
  • Testing your knowledge in our fun recycling game
  • Making a grass caterpillar out of old tights
  • Making new from old: create headbands, jewellery, bags and bunting from preloved clothes
  • Helping create an upcycled planter
  • Participating in our swapping board – share or collect a preloved item
  • Finding out what Changeworks have done on Granton Medway so far
  • Giving us feedback on our progress with waste and recycling on the Medway
  • Collecting recycling bins (food caddies and blue boxes) if you don’t already have them
