A new initiative to reduce anti-social behaviour on the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links is proving successful.

The dry bar, held at Edinburgh Napier University Union on Saturday nights, is giving young people an alcohol-free place to hang out.

Aimed at 12 to 16-year-olds, the weekly club, named ‘The Union’, has seen numbers grow since its launch five weeks ago, with 32 youngsters dropping by at one point.
