A founder of Inchkeith Residents Association/Community Allotments, she has worked with CEC’s Tenant’s Advisory Group, is a Director of SCVO Credit Union and a Stonewall Ally. As a co-ordinator of Greens Persevere Group she played a key role in the Leith Walk Tardis Project, helping cement its identity as an enviable community hub.
