Christmas Message from East Lothian Council

We would like to share a short YouTube video, created by the ELC Communications team, ‘A festive message to our communities’, featuring the EL Provost, John McMillan and the Lord Lieutenant, Michael Williams, reflecting on this unprecedented year we are about to leave (thank goodness) thanking  communities, throughout East Lothian during COVID 19, for their enthusiasm, commitment and extraordinary efforts:

Parking in Haddington: Drop-In Discussion Sessions

See the news release from East Lothian Council, below, announcing details of two further public drop-in sessions to discuss plans to enhance parking provision in Haddington. The events will be held in the Town House on 25th and 26th February from 2pm to 7.30pm each day.

Everyone with an interest in the subject is welcome to attend. Further details here:

Would you use a local bus service?

East Lothian Council subsidises a number of bus services on routes where no alternative route exists, and where commercial bus operators would not be able to cover their costs if they delivered a service. Where a need is identified, the Council may subsidise a commercial operator to cover a whole route, or part of a route at a particular time of the day.

Do we have need for a public bus service to Morham and Garvald? It is difficult to live here without owning a car? Are there non-drivers, like teenagers or older people who would benefit? Could we see a situation where families could manage with one less car?
