Mayfield and Easthouses Community Council has suggested a new name for the under construction Newbattle High School and community facilities.

The move follows a survey carried out on the group’s Facebook page. The recommendation being put forward for the £32 million building currently known as Newbattle Centre is Newbattle Community Campus. It is due to open in August 2018. Other local community councils will be asked for their opinion.
