About Friends of the Water of Leith

FOWL.b is a constituted body which keeps a watching brief on all aspects of the Water of Leith and it's environs (generally 1-2 streets from the river). We try to do the best for the area and we would invite you to join us and represent your views.

There are 2 levels of membership

1) Friends - you are welcome to attend all public meetings and may vote on projects

2) Associate - if you or your organisation are able to assist with our modest running costs by donating an annual sum, we would ask you to consider completing the simple contact us form below.

Your help is vital to our continued operation and success, whether it be financial, volunteering your time or attending meetings to give your views.

Many thanks

Can you help ?

There are a number of ways to help FOWL carry out it's work in the area.

Firstly become a Friend by completing the simple form below and letting us know your email address. We will ask you at the AGM if you would like to help at volunteer clean ups etc or perhaps make a small donation. In the case of businesses, whilst we look to represent your interests as well as work on your behalf for the good of the area, we would also welcome any financial help with a regular Associate membership contribution.

Should you wish to leave a donation to us to help us continue our work, below are examples of the kinds of projects which require financial assistance in whole or in part which we would be delighted to discuss with you:

Publication of Prof John Hume Leith Guide (£tbc)

Feasibility studies on Custom House uses (~£10K)

Outdoor Gym at Coalie Park (~£3.6K)

Graffitti and Dog Mess High Pressure Washer and Maintenance (£1.8K)

Catalogue work for Leith-related art (£1.6K)

Hanging baskets and maintenance on Shore (£1.5K)

Your help is vital to our work, your time or attending meetings to represent your views is vital. If you feel you are able to help financially also, we greatly value your support.

Many Thanks
