Newtongrange Community Council’s work this year was praised at the group’s recent annual general meeting.

Jane Grant was elected to the community council to join chairman Jason Ferry, vice chairman Joseph Miller, secretary Ron Campbell, treasurer Morag Moffat and members Robert Murray and Peter Quinn. There are still four vacancies.

Councillor Bryan Pottinger (Lab) said: “Community councils are a very good thing, particularly for developing their own areas.
