Dalkeith children’s home claims

Midlothian Council is refusing to confirm or deny suggestions that the former Thornybank Nursery is to be bulldozed and a children’s home built on the site.

The building had been identified as a possible community hub once Dalkeith Community Centre closed.

But some residents claim plans are afoot to build a replacement for Midfield House in Lasswade on the Salters Road site.
