New funding announced!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that the NEA garden project has been awarded three year funding from the Big Lottery Fund Scotland.

With the support of our fantastic community, we have transformed a piece of unused waste land into a magical, creative and inclusive community garden that is open to all. Following the Big Lottery Fund award we are looking forward to developing and building on the wonderful work that has been taking place since the garden opened in June 2014. More news on the activities and opportunities that this grant will bring to our community will follow soon.



Big Lottery Fund Scotland Chair, Maureen McGinn, said:

“I am delighted that North Edinburgh Arts has been successful in securing a Big Lottery Fund grant. The funding will make a big difference where it is needed most and I wish North Edinburgh Arts every success as it goes on to develop and expand its project for the benefit of their local community.


Beach Clean 19th Sept
