Down on the Farm with P2/3 and P3!

Primary 2/3 and Primary 3 classes have had a great time visiting Gorgie Farm this week! We took part in lots of fun activities to help us learn more about our ‘On the Farm’ topic. These included feeding the farm animals, handling reptiles in the pet house and making our own butter from cream! Please look at our slideshow gallery to see some photos of this experience:

20mph Speed Limits Go Live

Edinburgh 20mph Speed Limits  – Go Live
 
From Sunday 31 July, the legal speed limit in streets across much of Edinburgh’s city centre and rural west area went down to 20mph, the first phase in a planned rollout of lower speeds across the Capital.
 
The new speed limits are designed to increase safety for all road users in Edinburgh as well as creating a calmer, more people-friendly environment in shopping and residential streets.  A network of key arterial roads across the city will be retained at 30mph and 40mph, resulting in a modest impact on journey times overall.
 
Our phased 20mph rollout between now and early 2018 brings to fruition many years of planning and public consultation and the network has been designed in line with robust criteria in partnership with key stakeholders such as Police Scotland and Lothian Buses.
 
Police Scotland will enforce the new limit, focusing on areas where particularly high levels of contraventions are recorded. Anyone caught breaching the limit risks a £100 fixed penalty and three penalty points on their licence.
 
We have long recognised that a majority of city residents want to see speed limits reduced in the city centre, around residential areas and in busy shopping streets.
 
Phase 1 ‘go live’ marks the start of sharing these benefits right across the Capital.  Further information and a detailed map of the 20mph network is available at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/20mph or visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/edin20mph.
