The Trust in conjunction with project partners City of Edinburgh Council are organising a small gathering to celebrate the opening of the Fair a Far weir fish pass. The event will take place on the 3rd March 2018 at 11.30am next to the weir at the old mill building. All are welcome to come along and learn more about the project and we will have guest speakers, RiverLife stall, tea/coffee and home baking. We will also be joined by Cramond Angling Club who will open the salmon fishing season on the River Almond alongside the fish pass opening celebration with a toast to the river and a celebratory cast.
