>Alex Cole-Hamilton opposes Botanic Gardens entrance charge

>Liberal Democrat candidate for Edinburgh Central, Alex Cole-Hamilton, has spoken out against the proposed £5 entry fee for visitors to Edinburgh’s beautiful Botanic Gardens. I used to take Anna there a lot when she was little and it’s there she first learned to appreciate different plants and flowers, not to mention develop a fascination for squirrels. It’s a favourite meeting spot for mums and children.

There’s no way we’d be able to go if we had to pay £15 for the three of us to get in. It seems such an excessive charge and it would be a real shame if the gardens lay empty and unappreciated outside the tourist season.

Alex feels so strongly partly because he has a long standing love for Gardens and he and his wife Gillian were married there. Listen to him talk about it in the video below, which is also available here on You Tube.
