The third week of PEP’s summer programme of events included a trip to Dunbar, a craft class, the annual Summer Fayre and a visit to the Blair Drummond Safari Park.

The outing to Dunbar gave another opportunity for some shopping and relaxing.  It was great to have so many people going to the East Lothian harbour town including some who had never been there before.

The craft class switched topics this session with jewellery work making a return! The group got busy designing their own bracelets and necklaces, choosing their colours and shapes carefully to make some beautiful pieces of wearable art!

The Summer Fayre was held on the Thursday and the weather was perfect, not too hot and not too cold! We were delighted to welcome along ‘MacMillan Cancer’, the ‘Knit and Natter Group’, ‘Bowel Cancer UK’ and Irena and Marion from the ‘Move it Project’. It was a great day with additional PEP stalls all fundraising. There was seated exercise at the central circle which was a popular choice for many, and a barbeque supplying burgers and sausages for the fayre goers.

The event was also visited by MSP Ben MacPherson and local Councillor Eleanor Bird  and the local community police came and joined in the fun too. George kept the music going and the fayre closed with the ever popular raffle. Thanks to all the staff, volunteers and attendees for making the day such a success.

Two buses made the annual pilgrimage to the wonderful Blair Drummond Safari Park. It was a dry day with the sun even making appearance. The buses started by going around the animal enclosures including the new baboon area! It was great to see all the monkeys with their babies clinging to them.  There was plenty of time for people to then do their own thing whether that meant relaxing with a packed lunch or heading for the boat trip around ‘Monkey Island’. It was a very busy day and just as everyone was stepping back onto bus it started raining; things couldn’t have been timed more perfectly.

As always PEP’s Summer Fayre was held in the community gardens opposite the offices at 3 West Pilton Park. The fayre was opened by manager Helen Tait and 5 band members from the Davidson Mains & District Pipe band. 4 pipers and a drummer started off the proceedings and played several rousing tunes expertly and professionally. The BBQ was manned by volunteers and produced a steady stream of food and drink for everyone to enjoy.


There were stalls for fundraising or giving out information; these included the Bright Sparks Nursery, The Edinburgh North West Carers, the Weekend Resource, the Neighbourhood Group, PEP Pets, Scottish Gas and Tony’s Tombola. Leanne from the Pilton Community Health Project also kept people busy with some seated exercise in the centre of the gardens. Emily also came along and provided more fun for the kids (and some adults too) with fantastic face painting.


A huge thank you to Clare and the Davidson Mains & District Pipe Bank, Leanne for the seated exercise, Emily for the face painting, Scottish Gas for volunteering and fundraising and all the other volunteers and organisations who were able to come along on the day and make it such a wonderful success. Thank you also to Morrison’s Ferry Road and the Edinburgh Cyrenians for their continued support.
