Despite light but steady rain all through the day, Friends of Dalmeny Street Park kept up their spirits and entertained local children with a range of activities, including healthy eating, face painting, games and a treasure hunt. Lothian & Borders Police were on hand to give crime prevention tips and to provide five a side football skills, while City of Edinburgh community wardens were on hand to give advice about council services.

The Old Drill Hall held one of Out of the Blue's regular weekend flea markets, so there was plenty for people to do out of the rain, and Linda.

Linda and associates created a lovely space in her fitness studio at the top of Balfour St. Leith & North's editor was especially impressed by Joy Fraser's Fair Trade fudge, motto: "The Happy Fudge Company: FairTrade Fudge, spreading happiness".
