Capital scrubs-up a Mile!

This week volunteers, business people, residents and council workers have been cleaning up the Royal Mile.  The work is helping to conserve and manage the famous street to stop its reputation slipping.  After a workshop organised by the council thirty people split into groups of four to repaint, pick up litter and remove graffiti from Castle Hill, Lawnmarket, High Street and the Canongate. A Royal Mile Manager will be appointed to help make the street “feel better” to walk around and the council believe the project will continue over 15 to 20 years. Edinburgh Napier News visited the Royal Mile today to have a look at this weeks result and find out people’s thoughts.
