Everyone is encouraged to get involved in a Week of Action to help tidy up Wester Hailes next week, Monday 17th to Friday 21st October 2022.
The City of Edinburgh Council is working with a range of partners including Prospect, Places for People, Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire and rescue Service on a community clean-up to clear up litter, clean away graffiti, remove dumped and unwanted items, and carry out some maintenance.
