WHAT IS IT?
Last September we ran the first Youth Vision Gathering at our amazing Pentland Hills farmstead - now we're back for more!!! All are welcome from 1pm on Saturday 19th May for workshops, activities, hearty grub, live music and top notch company :-) Come and see where and how we work! We want to celebrate the work we do and to enjoy the beautiful hills with all of you!
WHO ARE WE?
Youth Vision is a registered charity which works with hard to reach young people from south-west Edinburgh. We are a grassroots organisation, working from the ground up to support our young people to build their confidence and resilience by learning new skills in a positive and supportive environment.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
The standard ticket price of £15 covers the whole event - that's right - food, hot drinks, camping, live music, workshops and all activities! If you decide to come for a few hours in the day time, then entry will be free and we will be accepting donations throughout the event. There is also a reduced price ticket of £12 for students, over 65's and unemployed folks. ALL FUNDS RAISED WILL GO DIRECTLY TOWARDS THE WORK WE DO WITH VULNERABLE YOUNG PEOPLE IN SOUTH-WEST EDINBURGH.
WHERE IS IT?
The Youth Vision base is at Threipmuir farmstead in the Pentland Hills, just outside Edinburgh. The farmstead is located on the north-eastern section of Threipmuir reservoir, at the end of the causeway which runs between the Threipmuir and Harlaw reservoirs. By car it is easiest to park at the public car park by Harlaw Visitor Centre, then walk around Harlaw reservoir and on to the farmstead. Travelling by bus, the number 44 bus from Edinburgh takes you all the way to the Balerno bus depot, from where you can walk uphill towards the Threipmuir reservoir car park and walk from there. Signs will point you in the correct direction on the day!
WHO IS THE EVENT FOR?
The Youth Vision Gathering is for anybody that is interested in youth work, the outdoors, grassroots organisations and generally having a good time with like-minded folk! All ages are welcome through the day but we will operate an over-18's policy after 8pm on the day of the event.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Warm, waterproof clothes and footwear could well be essential, this being the fantabulous Scottish hills! A tent and sleeping bag if camping overnight. Additional refreshments you may require . . . a willingness to get involved and to have a good time!
