We need community and not just homes. Community is about more than just bricks and mortar homes, it is about building relationships and joining together. For too long Lindsayfield has had a transient nature with many residents travelling far and wide for local services, Scout and Brownie meetings, fitness clubs, a place of worship, parents and toddlers and many other groups that can be in the centre of our community. Numerous plans have been made and we have had a decade of talk and no action. This is why I have taken up the challenge to take action and call on the council to answer the needs of Lindsayfield.

As part of the campaign Paul McGarry and local residents built their own community centre in the Lindsayfield area. It may not have had walls or a roof, it did have tables chairs and members of the community gathering together. The community centre was joined by Willie Rennie leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats who met residents over a cup of coffee and discussed views of the area and in particular the rush to build houses and not communities.

The campaign continues and already has over 100 signatures.
