Letter: Sarah’s fond farewell to ‘amazing’ North Edinburgh community
This is a really hard letter for me to write, but I need to say goodbye to the amazing community of North Edinburgh. I’ve worked for what was Community Education, and then Community Learning and Development in Greater Pilton for over twenty years.
It’s been a total privilege to serve such a strong and proud community. There are too many people to mention, many of them gone now, but to every learner and activist I’ve supported in every group, each child, young person, family, management committee and partner, it’s been so special and I will miss you all so very much.
Thank you for putting up with me for all those years! Your community has taught me so much and I feel proud and blessed to have been able to work here. The Council’s ‘Transformation’ process has meant I’ve been moved to another part of the city. I wish you everything you’d wish for yourself,
With much love and respect,
Sarah Neal (Low)’
