One of our trees unfortunately came down on Friday 22nd May during the very strong winds and partially blocked Old Dalkeith Road at the junction of Kinston Avenue. We are pleased to report that no one was injured and no damage caused either to vehicles or the boundary wall.

Photographs appeared in the Edinburgh Evening News and can be viewed via this link:

Another piece of good fortune was that one of the vehicles stuck behind the fallen tree was that of a tree surgeon. He, together with the police, moved the tree to the side of the road and cut it up in to pieces. The Captain and Council would like to offer their thanks and appreciation to all for this kind act.
