LOANHEAD: Loanhead Town Council have been asked to approach Scottish Omnibuses for an improved service of buses for workers who have to travel to and from Edinburgh. Councillor Tom Hunter said that the present service was “anything but adequate” and instanced the non-arrival of normal duplicate buses on a few mornings. Provost Feeney said he had received several complaints, and that the bus company had told him that they were not always able to maintain these services because of absenteeism.

1991

PENICUIK: Work is expected to begin shortly on Penicuik’s new £800,000 leisure centre. Contractors Hall and Tawse have won the contract to build the new Queensway leisure facility. The new building will include a multi purpose area, an equipped fitness room with associated changing facilities and a children’s soft play area.

2006

MIDLOTHIAN: Further delays have been announced in the opening of Midlothian’s new primary schools. It is understood that the new building incorporating Bryans and Langlaw Primaries will open in October 2007, six months later than planned. Ladywood and Eastfield Primaries and Strathesk Nursery, Penicuik, will also open at the same time instead of being ready for the start of the new term.
