Users of the charity Health All Round met with Councillor Jason Rust yesterday to discuss issues that concern them in the south west of Edinburgh.

Members of the charity's Multi Cultural Women's Group, based at Springwell House, Gorgie, discussed concerns including bus access and playgroup facilities.

Councillor Rust said: "The charity does a lot of good work with minority groups.

"The Women's Group is vital in encouraging socialising and building a sense of community in what could potentially be a bewildering environment.

"It is important that a link is made between the council and those who find it difficult to access services."
