Hard to believe, but Edinburgh and Lothians Greenspace Trust (ELGT) is 21 today!
SInce it’s formation back in 1991 as Edinburgh Green Belt Trust, ELGT has raised over £11 million to deliver over 500 environmental and community projects across the area, improving the quality of life for thousands of local people. An independent charity and social enterprise, ELGT works with community groups, schools and businesses to improve local parks, gardens, woodlands and other green spaces.
Among ELGT’s many successes was the upgrade to Drylaw’s green spaces carried out with local schools and Drylaw Telford community council.
ELGT will be hosting a reception to mark their milestone anniversary this afternoon – many happy returns!
