I moved to Edinburgh in 1976, when I took up a research post at the then Scottish Office, and I’ve been here, on and off, since then. I now have an honorary research post at Glasgow University. Living in Leith for the last 10 years, I’ve been a member for first Leith Links Community Council, and now Leith Central, for the past four years.

I am also the EACC representative on the Edinburgh Partnership

EACC belongs to every Edinburgh Community Council

Its aim is to provide support, advise and give a collective voice for community councils when facing the challenges community councillors encounter on an almost daily basis. No one person is more important than any other. All community councils have a voice on the EACC!!
