The Ridge has been lucky enough recently to receive funding from the Local Area Partnership to clear overgrown vegetation from the Black Bull Close. This is a fantastic step forward for us and “clears the way” so to speak to allow Simpson and Brown to carry out a Feasibility Study to further our works in the Black Bull Close.

Our Local Area Partnership has also very generously provided funding that allows pupils from Dunbar Grammar School to work one day a week at the Backlands gaining valuable work and life experience.

We have also received funding from SCVO and NHS Lothian.

This funding will be used to deliver new courses, more information on which will follow very soon so watch this space.
