Midlothian Fun Day planned

BIRKENSIDE Fun Day celebrates its 10th birthday on Sunday – and you’re invited to the party!

The community’s annual celebration begins in the local park at 1 pm, with David Hamilton MP performing the official opening.

An afternoon of frolics features Borthwick Pipe Band, magic shows, prize bingo, a raffle prize draw and fun races for the kids.

Quad bikes, pony rides, a wrecking ball, bungee football and a Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service tender are among the attractions.

Jim Muirhead, chairman of Birkenside Community Partnership, said: “We have always managed to keep the event a family-orientated one, with the emphasis being on good old-fashioned fun. We have tried to make this programme a celebration of the last 10 years.”
