Fond farewell to Midlothian minister

A MINISTER has been praised for his work across several Midlothian communities.

Members of Tyne Valley Parish Churches, local people, friends and family packed Pathhead Village Hall recently to acknowledged the contribution of Rev Graham Leitch.

The 64-year-old has retired after serving settlements around Pathhead and North Middleton for the last nine years.

Prior to his Midlothian charge, Graham was minister of Barclay Church in Edinburgh for 23 years and Ferryden Church near Montrose.
