Essential Edinburgh’s vision is to ensure that Edinburgh city centre excels as a place to work, a place to do business, a place to shop and a place to visit. Working closely with our over 600 members we maintain a determined focus on supporting city centre business to increase customer numbers and revenue; ensure the delivery of world-class environmental services within the city centre; proactively market Edinburgh city centre as a world-class business, retail and tourism destination and facilitate collaborative and productive relationships between city centre businesses and all city partners. "Essential Edinburgh are delighted to support the Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail and Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity. The ECHC is a charity close to Edinburgh’s heart as it delivers amazing support to families throughout the city and has touched the vast majority of the city’s population. The trail will showcase one of Scotland’s favourite sons and will be a great attraction over the summer months for the city’s residents and visitors to enjoy. We are delighted to be working closely with ECHC to host the exhibition weekend in September and welcome all the sculptures to St Andrew Square Garden. "
