David Tatton - Community environment champion

I retrained in horticulture following a lengthy career managing social care services for Edinburgh council. Then set up a small market garden providing fresh produce to the local community.

Colin Gilmour – Community gardener

I have lived in Craigshill since 1975 and attended both Riverside primary and Craigshill high before it closed. I have been involved in allotment gardening as long as I can remember.

Andrew Gosland – Community gardener

For the last 3 years I’ve been volunteering as a gardener with a charity called Youth Vision near Threipmuir reservoir and also volunteer with Cyrenians in Kirknewton for Sight Scotland.

Kirsty Roberstson – Activities coordinator

I'm a very sociable person so the role of activities coordinator really suits me perfectly. Every day is so varied and honestly so rewarding I couldn't wish to be in a better place. 

Yvonne Weighand Lyle – Community Artist

I am an artist born and raised in the Lothians, making public art and painting. I have a socially engaged practice and a proven track record of facilitating community-led and co-creation projects. Lothian culture and heritage are core and central to my artwork.
