The Development Trust has issued the following news updates.
Leith Nautical College Reunion Weekend
This year would have been the 40th anniversary of the Leith Nautical College Milton Road campus. So in honour of this, the Edinburgh College Development Trust has been working with a steering group, locally based ex-staff and students, to create a Leith Nautical Reunion Dinner. This event will be taking place on the 29 September at The EH15 Restaurant,
The Club Building (Top Floor). The restaurant is on the Milton Road campus where 40 years ago Prince Charles officially opened this building.
On the afternoon of Saturday the 29th to celebrate Door’s Open Day, there will be an exhibition held at South Leith Parish Church, 6 Kirkgate, Leith EH6 6BS. Come along and see many Leith Nautical College mementoes and view displays, as well as Leith’s maritime history and the church’s strong maritime links. While there you can even make a stop across the road to the Trinity House Museum for free! That features a remarkable collection celebrating Leith’s maritime history.
In the evening the reunion dinner will be held. Drinks reception upon arrival, followed by a three-course meal at the EH15 restaurant.
To end the weekend there will be a sea-themed thanksgiving service held South Leith Parish Church. This is to honour the church’s strong maritime links throughout the years. Hopefully, this is a peaceful end to a fun and busy weekend.
