The big church on the corner is collecting ideas…

We are Willowbrae Parish Church, we’re investing in the local area, and we hope to create space in our church buildings for the wider community. We are engaging with the community by asking two questions: What do you think the community needs? and What are your hopes for the community?

Please do not take Veg from the Upmo Garden

The Upmo gardening crew have been working very hard to grow fruit and veg in the garden which is used in their workshops and café.

It has come to our attention that some people are helping themselves to the veg who are not part of the Upmo project. We ask that everyone at St Margaret’s House is considerate and respectful of the Upmo Garden, and only those involved in the project harvest from the crops.

Many thanks from the Upmo community.

Jennifer Ewan Band at the Fringe

Support St Margaret’s House resident musicians – The Jennifer Ewan Band – by going to see their show at the Jazz bar this fringe.  The show starts at 5:30pm and is on the  3rd, 9th, 14th, 16th, 21st and 24th of August.

Tickets can be bought via the Edinburgh Fringe website for £10 (£8 for concessions) : https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/bonnie-bayou

The Jennifer Ewan Band presents an exhilarating melting pot of heartfelt original songs and old-time Louisiana Creole and Cajun dance classics. As well as performing beautiful new Scottish pop, this upcoming songwriter and her bayou band demonstrate an easy familiarity with the older dance music of the swamps of rural French Louisiana – featuring Cajun blues licks from accordionist drummer Kim Tebble and swamp-pop grooves from Ian “Stretch” McFadyen on electric bass. Live Cajun band and fabulous Cajun food! ‘Just brilliant – music of the highest quality – a Scottish rising star’ (Janice Forsyth, BBC Radio Scotland).
