A small gathering in craigmillar. Gus Meecham artist displays his work with his golden Niddrie brick. Later on joined by Kids from The Venchie throughSusan E Heron and Nikki Barnes. And we told the story of the violin, which is the story of a local mother who wanted her son to learn to the violin and how out of this grew The Craigmillar Festival Story. Hopefully this will be a bigger event next year when we celebrate 10 years of World Community Arts Day.
