BIG is a community owned and run charitable organisation based in south Edinburgh. Our mission is to renovate Bridgend Farmhouse to create a centre for Learning, Eating and Exercise.
This will provide a community hub along with a variety of activities and services enabling people to live healthier, happier lives and have better relationships with the world around them.
Places still available on the next Community Cafe training course starting January 9th. For more detail click on the flyer below. To book your place contact Fiona Evans:

Or call in at Sandy's Community Centre, 76 Craigmillar Castle Avenue.
Bridgend Inspiring Growth (and the communities that we serve) now officially own Bridgend Farmhouse and steadings.
As of 24th November 2016, after much behind the scenes work, legal details, complications, years and years of campaigning, commitment, dreaming, and much much more... we are almost there, but at least now know that the dream of community ownership of the farmhouse and land is now complete.
Thanks to everyone for your perseverance.
We are now in a position to move forward with our major farmhouse renovation project. More updates to follow soon.
Bridgend Inspiring Growth Community Calendar for 2017
offers small businesses, local organisations and the voluntary sector a special opportunity to inform the communities of Liberton, Gilmerton, Craigmillar and Portobello about their work.
With the loss of local community newspapers, it can be difficult to inform everyone you need to about your work; your AGMs; or what your business offers.
Book early and choose a theme to complement your business or organisation.
Use the calendar to promote not just your organisation - but key dates such as AGMs, special events or anniversaries. More info here
Deadline now 15th December
Bonfire Night at the Farmhouse
On Sunday 6th November we had a really magical Bonfire Night at Bridgend Farmhouse. An enormous thanks to all that attended, brought and shared food, music and helped out in many different ways. It was a great evening...and has warmed us for a colourful and crisp Autumn ahead!
