Congratulations! These projects will benefit the Leith community in many different ways, through the energy, work and commitment of the great project teams listed above.
Sadly, not everybody can be successful. The groups and projects whose names do not appear above did not win funding on this occasion.This is no reflection on the quality of their projects, which were all excellent, but just that, unfortunately, there is never enough money available. The £eith Chooses team is as upset about this as the project groups must be. Thank you for participating.
Any project applicants who wish private feedback on their application, votes received etc. are most welcome to email in for this information to Caroline.Lamond@edinburgh.gov.uk
There will be an open ‘Feedback’ discussion session on Tuesday 10 March, at 6:30 pm in the Leith Community Centre cafe, to review and evaluate all/any aspects of the 2020 £eith Chooses process. All welcome, and all views and contributions will be listened to and taken on board for future events. Do come along!
