Magnificent Magpost!

We are grateful to East Lothian Council for installing the MagPost in the Play Area.

You may recall that we were awarded civic pride funding for the Magpost with the aim of fostering a greater respect and understanding of the flora and fauna of the park.

We ordered the MagPost from Caledonia Play,  a Scottish company whose play equipment is made using slow grown, treated timbers from sustainable managed sources. 

The MagPost incorporates a scientific quality 5x magnifying glass on a hardwood post. This, along with it's accessibility makes it an ideal means for exploring the natural world and encouraging experimentation to stimulate a child's knowledge of science through play.

We would love to see how you use the MagPost - tweet us a photo (@cuthillpark)

Impromptu Litter Pick

The team.


And more flyers.

Several large pieces of luggage were discovered. 

And just when we thought there couldn't possibly be any more of those flyers ... 

And now the wildlife area under the trees is looking much better. No photos of that unfortunately as we were playing too hard in the park to remember to take any at the end. 

From Cuthill Park, with love!

Here's a look at today's progress on the community garden paths. Not long now until the concrete surfacing is finished.
