Balerno Village Trust - Edinburgh & South East (Lothian, Borders)

BVT runs Balerno Farmers Market every second Saturday of the month; convenes a Friends of Main Street group who improve and tend public planting in the village. We have helped a local campaign to fundraise for refurbishment of a 2G sport spitch, and will be managing it as a social enterprise for the use of local people from autumn 2016. BVT supports local initiatives such as the annual Balerno Music Festival. In 2016 BVT is running a community consultation with the Community Council to help develop a plan for the community and priorities for Harlaw Hydro Community Benefit Funding. From 2017 we expect to manage a small grants programme and strategic funding from Harlaw Hydro Community Benefit Funds. We run working groups to develop infrastructure projects in the village including the development of a community garden and a visitors centre in the Pentlands.
