A local charity which supports relatives looking after a child, has opened a new community garden in Newtongrange. Kinship Carers opened the facility at Newbattle Community Learning Centre, following a year of hard work by volunteers, aided by £1,100 from the council’s small projects fund and local support.

Myra Orr, peer support worker at Kinship Carers said “It’s nice to have an outside space for relaxation. A place that the kids can go to and be children and enjoy themselves.”
