Have your say on Dalkeith hub proposals

Dalkeith residents are being invited to give their views on a proposed community hub.

Almost ten months since The Advertiser launched its “Give us a Hub” campaign, a public meeting has been called to discuss options for a community centre on the site of the former Dalkeith High School at Newmills Road.

Council leader Owen Thompson (SNP) wants as many local residents as possible to attend: “We want the public to take a lead on this. We want locals to come up with ideas and if we can support any of them then that is the best way forward.”

Organised by Dalkeith and District Community Council and Eskbank and Newbattle Community Council, the meeting will take place at Dalkeith Arts Centre on Monday, February 23, at 6pm.
