Pleasance Number Shop under threat

The Number Shop is under threat. The problem is that a move to save money within the Community Learning and Development section of Edinburgh Council is proposing saving money by closing the premises at the top of the Pleasance and distributing the service to various places (hubs) around the city.

Except the council saves just £11,000 per year on the lease for the premises and the alternatives - not yet worked up - seem likely to be more expensive to run.

More details here, including an interview with Blackford resident Nicki Slater.
