The first job Pauline Winchester took on as a new councillor was a pre-election promise she had made to clean a bus shelter at Pentland Caravan Park.

A local resident had complained that the bus shelter was dirty and Cllr Winchester promised that as soon as possible after the election she would clean it up, which she did just two days after being elected, aided by the chairman of the Midlothian Conservative Association.
