PENICUIK: A suggestion that Croft Street, Penicuik, should become a one-way street, was strongly opposed by Councillor Steven at a meeting of Penicuik Town Council. He described the suggestion as unnecessary, short-sighted, dangerous, and no useful purpose would be served by doing so.


BONNYRIGG: Workers at Ross Young’s Bonnyrigg sandwich factory are said to be “devastated” by last week’s shock announcement that the site will close in April with the loss of 25 jobs. A programme of phased redundancies has now been set in motion.


DALKEITH: Groups campaigning against the A68 bypass are worried that the £40 million project is gathering speed following the eviction of protesters from sites on the proposed route over recent days. The first stage of evictions started as the rain fell early on Monday morning near Langside Farm, one of the five sites which has been inhabited by protestors since November after three oak trees were felled.
