Re-Union Canal Boats (www.re-union.org.uk) has proposed creating a central point to allow the public to access a variety of information promoting the Union Canal. This might include leaflets, displays or other media, such has been done for Glasgow canals. http://www.scottishwaterwaystrust.org.uk/unlocking-the-story and http://www.scottishwaterwaystrust.org.uk/media/152733/final%20pdf.pdf Whilst the Community Council has been speaking to Scottish Canals and considers the upgrade of the towpath to be the greatest priority, this initiative is an opportunity to encourage people to use the towpath and visit the village and enjoy its facilities. There is an online survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6RV7RJR running until 31 July to allow you to give your opinions and offer any skills or useful information you have. There is even a space which would allow you to mention that the towpath between Ratho and Hermiston requires some repair to allow for comfortable walking.
