Successful visit to Bruntsfield golf club – letter of thanks to the Captain, David Paterson
Dear David,
We would like to say a big thank you for our wonderful visit to Bruntsfield yesterday. It was fascinating to see this huge open space in our area which contains such a varied landscape and wildlife. It was interesting to visit the woods and see the quarry and walk down the fairways and see all the magnificent trees. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the woodlands group and archaeologist were particularly happy to learn about the area. 

The links have a lovely ambience which is, no doubt, due to the hundreds of years of careful maintenance and management. Thank you also for the coffee/tea and scones which was much appreciated.

Many, many thanks for everything.

Best wishes
Diana Hart

Proposed care home on
Whitehouse Road/Cramond Glebe Road
Please could you help preserve the special nature of Cramond by opposing the planning application for this monolithic and very unsightly care home? The Cramond Action Group has been set specially to do this. The reasons for objecting to the Planning Application can be seen on the Cramond Action Group's website - you may wish to use some or all of them in your objection.

If you have not yet managed to do so yet it would be great if you could send in your comments as soon as possible. You only have until midnight on 24 October to do so.
