Save Our Meadows
The Campaign continues
Princes Street Ferris Wheel
As you can see from the Evening News article here
, events money can be used to fund park improvements. Could this principle be applied to the Meadows?
Deputation to the TIE Committee
Fombl Convener, Heather Goodare, is leading a deputation to the Council's Environment Committee when they consider the latest proposals about events in parks on August 26th. See the proposed draft of our petition here. Please note change of date.
Summer Meeting and AGM
Our next meeting will be our AGM, at the Croquet Club in Leven Terrace, when our speaker will be Jennifer Thomson on ‘Managing and designing green space for health’. The date is 26 June, and the time is 7.30 pm, preceded by an opportunity to have a go at croquet. See the Meetings page

Wild flower plot
A new wild flower plot has been created on the Meadows. Read about it here.
Parks Events Consultation
The City of Edinburgh Council consultation on events in parks has now closed. If you are at all concerned about the damage events do to the Meadows each year please keep up the pressure by writing to your Councillors. The FoMBL press release on this topic can be found here.
Jawbones to go!
According to the Edinburgh Evening News, the famous Jawbone Arch is to be removed because of safety concerns. See the article here
