Jennifer Graham

1. Tell us a bit about yourself in a couple of sentences

 My name is Jennifer Graham and I run Catherine Green Recruitment.  We are an environmental recruitment agency based in Edinburgh.   
 
2.  What do you love about the city?
 
I like the architecture and the size of the place.  I think Edinburgh is just a large village but still big enough to be of interest but small enough to keep you feeling neighbourly.
 
 3.  What would you change about Edinburgh if you could?
 
I would stop the tram works which have effectively killed off a lot of independent small businesses in Leith and the West End.
 
4.  What are your must sees in town for visitors?
 
Gorgie farm for my friends with kids, Mary King’s Close for the tourists and then a walk down and around the Water of Leith.
 
5.  Favourite Street or area and why?
 
Causewayside, for the antique shops that are there and if you get hungry there is always Snax and a sit down in the Meadows.
 
6.  Where would we find you relaxing in Edinburgh?
The Cumberland bar with the dog
 
7.  When you are out of town, what do you miss about Edinburgh the most?
Our house, I love it!  I live in such an amazing area and hate being away from it.
 
8.  If you had 24 hours in town before you had to leave forever, what would you do?
 
I would go to Khushi’s, cram in Gorgie Farm and the Museum of Scotland.  I would then eat a smoked sausage super and drink some irn bru pay the Cumberland bar a visit for my last drink.
 
 9.  Any interesting stories you know about Edinburgh?
 
The park I played in as a child has Robert Louis Stevenson’s house over the road and the wee island in the middle inspired Treasure Island.
 
10.  Sum up Edinburgh in 5 words or less.
 
Majestic, warm hearted and beautiful
