‘Jazz in the Village’ comes to Juniper Green
Saurday 6th October, 8 til’ late
Juniper Green Village Hall Organisation, 1a Juniper Park Road, Edinburgh, EH14 5DX

Jazz duo Ian Millar and Dominic Spencer have performed together for many years, playing melodic improvisations on jazz standards and original compositions.

The Saxophone/Piano duo are based in Edinburgh. You may already have encountered them in Edinburgh at Henry’s Jazz Cellar or the National Museum of Scotland, but they don’t limit their performances to the local area. Festival appearances have included Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fife and Borders Jazz Festivals and Buxton and Bath Fringe Festivals. They have also played to enthusiastic audiences in a range of venues across the UK – Arts Centres and small theatres from Aberdeen to Bath, Maidenhead to Winchester and Windsor, and even Brussels (OK – that’s not the UK!), while their regular rural ‘Jazz in the Village’ series has covered John O’Groats to Devon and Dorset, visiting hundreds of halls, often bringing Jazz to remote communities for the first time.
Juniper Green is not so remote! So do join us at the Village Hall on Saturday 6th October from 8pm. This is your chance to hear this talented duo live without having to travel far from your home.
Tickets: £10pp (under 16s FREE if accompanied by an adult). Tickets available or the night, or can be bought in advance at the Hall when the janitor is on duty, Mon-Fri, afternoons/evening only – (0131)­ 458-3751 to check. Alternatively email JGVHO Events.

We do not have a licence to sell alcohol, so please BYOB and other refreshments.

“Beautiful music – wonderful to hear this locally”
“I was blown away by your show, just breath-taking!”
“A unique performance, not only in its introduction of many new pieces but also in the splendidly relaxed jazz styling”

Juniper Green Village Hall AGM 2018
7th June, 7.15pm for 7.30pm
Your local Village Hall needs YOU!

It’s YOUR Hall, and we want you to use it and enjoy it, but we also need your help in many different ways – as a Management Committee Member to help us fulfil our plans for the next 12 months, to represent your Hall User Group, or simply to support the work we are doing by giving us with your ideas and opinions. Are we doing it right? Is there anything we can improve? The AGM is an opportunity to tell us.

We think our building is very special, with a real Village Hall ‘feel’ – we get lots of compliments. If you haven’t visited the Hall recently (or even at all), the AGM is a chance for you to find out what facilities we have.

Refreshments will be served from 7.15pm giving you an opportunity to mingle and buttonhole committee members in advance of the meeting if you have any issues you would like to raise.

The AGM is also an ideal opportunity to find out what we’ve been up to over the last year since the Hall re-opened, but also for you to tell us if we are providing all the facilities you want in your local Village Hall and, if not, what’s missing.

We would particularly welcome some Youth Members on the Committee. If you are 16 years or over and are interested in being part of the decision-making on behalf of your peers, please get in touch or simply turn up on the night.

The Management Committee is currently not at full strength which does make some of the projects we would like to undertake more difficult, so we encourage representatives from our Hall User Groups, particularly those which are not currently represented on the committee (all of them!) as well as local residents who value our Village Hall as an asset to the community to join us. We promise that we will not pressurise anyone to join the committee!

More than anything, we would like to have a quorum – and your opinions.

Christmas Tree Lighting at the Hall
Sunday 26th November, 4.30pm
Village Hall Community Garden

Everyone is welcome, no tickets required, just turn up on the day.

We have engaged a local celebrity character, known to some of the children, to perform the Switching on of the Lights. There will be storytelling and festive craft for the children, mulled wine, mince pies and roasted chestnuts for sale to keep everyone warm, and carol singing courtesy of the JG Primary School (thank you Mrs Donaldson for organising the children), which of course everyone can join in too!

We hope this will become an annual event, as much a part of the Christmas tradition and as eagerly anticipated as Santa’s annual tour of the Water of Leith communities.

Do come and join in the fun!

2017 AGM – Thursday 25th May – 7.30pm
This will take place in our newly repaired (and re-opened at last!) Village Hall. See News page for more details.

Juniper Green Farmers’ Market

The Farmers’ Markets were suspended in May 2016 following the closure of Juniper Green Village Hall.

At the time it was not clear whether, or when, the Hall would re-open.

In the event, this took a year (minus one week!) and the Hall was re-opened on Thursday 27th April 2017 following the completion of the necessary repair work. The licence to operate the Farmers’ Markets expired during the closure period. If the Markets are to continue, it will be necessary to apply for a new licence. This will be a joint decision by Juniper Green Community Council and the company responsible for organising the Markets.

Updated information will be posted here when it is available. Alternatively go to


or contact Juniper Green Community Council.
