Edinburgh residents invited to QMU Community Forum

Posted: 26th May 2017

QMU from the AirPeople in Edinburgh and East Lothian are invited to get an insight into the work of Queen Margaret University (QMU) by taking part in its Community Forum.

QMU will host its Community Forum at its Musselburgh campus in East Lothian on Tuesday 30th May at 6.30pm.

Local people will have the opportunity to ask questions about the University and how it is working with the community. Speakers at the event will include Dr Jane Culpan, Senior Lecturer on the BSc (Hons) Physical Activity, Wellbeing and Health, who will be discussing her course and how it links with the community.

The QMU Community Forum brings together university staff, local residents, businesses, organisations, schools and council representatives twice a year to discuss university and local community issues.

Jane Scott, Director of Marketing & Communications at QMU, said: “The QMU Community Forum is designed to create a link between local people in and around East Lothian, Edinburgh and the University. The popular event attracts a variety of interest from local residents, councillors and representatives from community groups.

“We look forward to welcoming a wide range of local people to our next Community Forum on 30 th May, when they will have the chance to find out about the fascinating work of the Queen Margaret Children’s University and about various outreach and learning initiatives taking place with the local area.”

QMU is open to the local community throughout the year, providing a range of public facilities, including learning resources, gym and sports centre, café, restaurant and grounds for leisure activities and dog-walking.
