Wester Hailes Greenway Hub
Joanna visited the Greenway Hub to learn more about how the hub will support the local community of Wester Hailes, Dumbryden and Murrayburn.
The Greenway Hub is a key goal of the Wester Hailes Local Place Plan and Joanna had previously supported their funding application.
They want to provide a welcoming and accessible place to support the community to become more connected, by joining up with other support providers in the area to offer a holistic service to the community. It will focus on young people under the age of 12. It also plans to take steps to reduce food insecurity and poverty in the community by helping to improve household finances and providing a venue for community food-based activity and learning. It also wants to promote the health and wellbeing of the community by encouraging and supporting healthy, sustainable living by improving diet and supporting positive mental health and employment prospects.
They will have a Community Space for community group activities, meetings, with an occasional community café. They will also have a food pantry and teaching kitchen.
They also want to have a Makers’ Workshop for youth training and making opportunities.
Joanna said ‘I loved my visit to the Murryburn and Hailseland neighbourhood garden, it has been great to find out more about the proposed Greenway Hub which I've been supporting. Thanks to Alan for showing me around.’
