I have lived in Juniper Green for six years in the supported accommodation in Baberton Park. I retired in 2014 from working as a manager at West Lothian College in Livingston. I have recently started working with the residents in Baberton Park to set up an association and am looking forward to working with the Community Council on matters that affect us all in Juniper Green.
A Juniper Green resident for over 20 years. I have worked as a beauty therapist here for over 10 years, and until recently I could also be found behind the counter in Wood's Deli. I'm married with one son who attended Juniper Green Primary and is now at Currie High. I'm often seen walking my two dogs beside the Water of Leith or on the Pentland Hills. We moved to Juniper Green as we wanted to live in a community, a neighbourhood. I've joined the JGCC to help keep the community spirit.
Born and raised in Colinton, it took me 40-odd years via living in a dozen different countries to arrive in Juniper Green. After an itinerant life, Ros and I have been settling down and involving ourselves with C&B News; Pentlands Book Festival; JG Farmers' Market; Pentland Art Club; Balerno Music Festival and other local activities. I hope to help build the community in Juniper Green and increase links with our neighbouring villages and beyond.
John has lived in Juniper Green since 2012. He recently took early retirement after a career as a housing development manager providing affordable housing; working for Edinburgh Council then 3 different housing associations. This involved renovation projects of traditional buildings in addition to new housing. He has also supported various community groups with their capital projects by giving advice on procurement and the planning application and grant applications processes. Currently he is acting as consultant for the National Mining Museum, assisting with its rehabilitation of its old colliery boiler house. He has a long standing interest in historic buildings and been a member of Historic Scotland and a volunteer tour guide of historic Edinburgh for over 25 years. In addition to history, he enjoys travelling, going to the cinema and is an enthusiastic but poor golfer. He looks forward to working with the residents of Juniper Green and Baberton, especially in supporting initiatives to help sustain and enhance their communities.
I was born and educated in Edinburgh, though I spent time as a child abroad, in Nigeria and Malaysia, as my father worked for various health departments in these countries.
I have spent most of my working life as a teacher, with a short spell lecturing on Art and History for Edinburgh University's extra-mural department, and breaks to be a full-time mother.
I have been interested in environmental issues and planning for a while, and would consider myself committed to campaigning on environmental protection and climate change.
Since retiring I have been keen to spend more time on these issues, and also to participate in local community initiatives.
