Queen Margaret University to stage Community Forum

People in Edinburgh 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 second Community Forum of this year at its Musselburgh campus on Monday 3rd November from 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 Callum Maguire, Head of Outreach & Community Engagement at QMU and Mary Brittain, Chief Executive of Children’s University Scotland.

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 3rd November, 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.
