Back in 2017, there was real concern about the future of the sports facilities at Westbank Street. The Council had announced plans to sell off the land used by Powerleague for 5-a-side football as a way of raising the money for the new Meadowbank Stadium. The cash would be shared between the Council and Powerleague. A campaign was started to 'S ...…
 
You may have seen the posts here on social media about the upcoming elections to community councils. In recent years, the one in Portobello has had quite a high profile. It has been conducting online surveys on a range of issues, the latest about the future status of Kings Place. They are supposed to be the ‘voice of the community’ but there ma ...…
 
This year’s Art Walk Porty is bigger than ever – and full of surprises. This is ‘art’ in its broadest possible sense. For example, you will be able to walk into someone’s house, sit down by a window and listen to the sounds of a night walk through the Amazon jungle. You’ll be able to take part in walks and cycle rides through parts of the area ...…

Local artist Teresa Gordon has an exhibition called ‘Ebb and Flow – Saltworks 2019’ which opens today.

As a result, she is intrigued by memory and its loss and hopes her work will raise awareness about the conditi ...…
 
For months, there has been a lot of heated debate on assorted online forums about Kings Place. In recent years, it has turned into a completely unregulated car and caravan park which has caused occasional distress to local residents. This week, two things have taken place. The first is a consultation from Portobello Community Council, asking ou ...…
 
What do you do if a swarm of bees lands in your garden? This week’s episode is something of a public information feature because that’s exactly what happened in the garden of Porty Podcast Producer, David Calder. He didn’t notice it at first – but his neighbour did! The family next door have two boys who love playing football and other ball gam ...…
 
An online campaign has been launched to persuade the people of Portobello to use the golf course. Didn’t know Porty had a golf course? Well. it was once a very popular facility – the Sir Harry Lauder Championship was played here until three or four years ago. But a year ago, demand for golf on this small, 9-hole course had fallen so much that E ...…

Called “From 88 Places”, it’s an extract from a much larger work, a series of photographs carefully taken at each of the 88 Shrines around a hillside in Kyoto in Japan. It took him several ...…
 
The talented local musician, Rosie Nimmo, is about to release a new album – probably called ‘Music is Sunshine’. It’s been three years in the making, three years to produce what she believes is her best work to date. It’s a solo album of new material and she wanted to take the time to make sure they sounded just right. Porty Podcast Producer Da ...…
 
Anyone who’s been to the monthly market in Brighton Park will have seen the stall run by the Greengrocer Project. Yes, they have fruit and veg to sell – but their main reason for being there is to keep up the profile for their longer-term ambition – to set up a shop. Their model is across on the other side of town, in Bruntsfield. It’s a commun ...…
 
You may notice that Portobello – especially the beach and indeed the waters of the Forth – are a little quieter than usual this coming week. The reason for this is that the two local rowing clubs are off to the ‘Skiffie Worlds’ – in other words, the World Championships for the St Ayles Skiffs, the rowing boats you see out almost every day. Row ...…
 
There have been assorted fairs selling arts and crafts at Bellfield since it opened its doors. But a new one will arrive tomorrow which has a rather different theme. It’s called ‘A Spoonful of Vintage by the Sea’ and it’s organised by a couple who moved to Portobello 5 years ago. They are fascinated by everything to do with the 1950s – as David ...…
 
The petition to save Portobello Town Hall is growing and approaching 1500 signatures – it may even have reached that target by this morning. The building has been neglected for many years. But its condition has deteriorated to the point where the Lothian Dance Academy’s Annual Show almost had to be cancelled. With hours to go, the work was carr ...…
 
You may have come across the Porty songstress, Sheila McWhirter, the lead singer with The Blue Moon Travellers. Sheila has had many roles throughout her life – she’s currently teaching English as a foreign language – but she really wants to focus on her music and on helping others to find their voices. The group has just produced its first CD, ...…
 
Some of you may have seen a group of people from Children 1st out on Porty High Street recently. They were canvassing opinion about a piece of legislation which has just started making its way through the Scottish Parliament. The new law, which some find controversial, would make it illegal for parents to smack or otherwise physically punish th ...…

Book blogs are very popular – there are well over 100 in the UK alone. They’re liked by the public because they help their readers find new books they might enjoy. They’re also liked by authors and publishers because they help to raise the profile of new titles. The Porty Book Blog has just celebrated its 4th anniversary. It was created by Joan ...…
 
Portobello Prom and Beach are well used by locals and visitors alike – one only has to think of the crowds who thronged here over the Easter Weekend to see this in action. However, there’s been a lot of interest in how to improve the area, to make everyone’s enjoyment of the beach that much better; and we’re not just talking about the area wher ...…
 
Both the police and the City of Edinburgh Council are keen to encourage people to take part in ‘active travel’. That means walking or cycling to work, walking or cycling to school. A substantial amount of the transport budget is already devoted to improving the infrastructure to let this happen. The 20mph speed limit was one part of it; the cre ...…
 
Over the last few days, you may have seen great changes at the Seafield end of the Prom. The wall at the back of the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home (EDCH) had been covered with graffiti and frankly looked an embarrassment! All of that has now been covered with white paint and a huge 25m (80ft) mural has been installed as well. It’s a joint venture ...…

Portobello has a new community police officer.

The police station in Porty is no longer permanently staffed – PC Knox is based out of Craigmillar – ...…
 
We’ve discussed the Edinburgh Shoreline Project before on the podcast. This weekend, volunteers from the Seafield Shoreline Group will be out planting saplings in the embankment from the Dog and Cat Home along towards King’s Road. The idea is to increase the diversity of plants in that part of the Prom which should, in turn, increase the divers ...…
 
The Edinburgh Tool Library has become a popular feature in Portobello. Its workshops, within the building run by Tribe Porty in Windsor Place, are filled with the kind of top of the range tools that cost a small fortune to buy. The concept is simple and works just like any other library – except, instead of books, you borrow all the tools you n ...…
 
How many of you were given roller skates as a child? And how many gave up after falling over a few times? There is a company based in Portobello whose mission is to change our minds and get people, adults as well as children, back on skates again. United Sk8s is run out of Tribe Porty and is the brainchild of founder, James Hunter. He insists t ...…

Tomorrow morning, a group of intrepid cyclists will head out from Portobello High School, escorting Gordon Barclay as he sets out on a 500 mile ride to Portobello Road in London.

This coming week, the Portobello Drama Group celebrates its 50th anniversary. It started off in a small way as the Drama Group for St Philip’s (now Portobello and Joppa Parish Church). But it quickly grew in numbers and ambition, moving from one-act plays to musicals. For this anniversary year, the company has revived one of its own creations: ...…
 
You may not have realised it but we’re just at the end of Fair Trade Fortnight – and it was marked by a special event today in Portobello Town Hall. Fair trade producers were represented along with the shops which sell those goods both locally and across the city. There is still time to get along. It closes at half past three this afternoon. Th ...…
 
The Greek island of Samos may seem a long way from Portobello. Some people may have been there on holiday, enjoying the sandy beaches and the warm waters of the Aegean. But the island is just a mile from the Turkish coast, which makes it a target for refugees fleeing war zones and trying to find a haven in Europe. There are now around 5,000 of ...…

HiFi Corner was founded almost 100 years ago, though not under its current name which first appeared in the 60s. What has been consistent however has been its commitment to supplying the best quality equipment - from gramophone and wireless to the latest amplifier and home cinema. Until now, its home has been in the centre of Edinburgh. But thi ...…
 
One of the great things about living in Portobello is the wide range of clubs and activities you can get involved with. Take ‘Fun Fiddle’ for example. It started a little over 15 years ago as a small informal group of adult learners. Since then it has grown and today offers classes to children and adults, from absolute beginners to experienced ...…

The Portobello branch of Amnesty International was founded a little over 40 years ago, about seven years after the creation of the organisation. You may have seen their stall at the regular market in Brighton Park or at the annual Village Fair. When lawyer Peter Benenson first set up Amnesty back in 1961, the idea was to win an amnesty for pris ...…
 
Calling all budding thespians and their helpers. Edinburgh Graduate Theatre will be staging a new production of Saint Joan – Joan of Arc to you and me - and, perhaps for the first time, it will be held in what is now known as the Celebration Hall at Bellfield. Although ‘The Grads’ – to give them their popular name - have a number of regular cas ...…
 
Brighton Place - Setts! It’s an argument that won’t go away, even though the decision was final and the work is well under way again – the street has been closed again after the Christmas break. Towards the end of last year, we carried an interview with the ‘Stop the Setts’ campaign. But that prompted comments that it had been one-sided and tha ...…

Yes, it's that time of year again - a time of contrived jokes, Porty references galore and lots of excited children screaming "he's behind you!"...and they're just in the cast! For the first time, the Panto - Snow White - will be in the Main Hall of Bellfield where the final rehearsals are currently taking place. For the final podcast of 2018, ...…
 
The Porty Street Fest is now an annual tradition. But this year, it takes on a special significance with the closure of Brighton Place.

And the BAFTA goes to… Porty’s own Shauna Macdonald. Shauna has been an actress for some 20 years, working in film, television and theatre.
