Jobs will fly at Roslin avian centre

A NEW research centre being built in Midlothian is a major boost for the area, a local MSP says.

Construction is underway on the £14 million National Avian Research Facility (NARF) beside The Roslin Institute at Edinburgh University’s Easter Bush campus.

Colin Beattie MSP, the SNP member for Midlothian North and Musselburgh, attended a recent meeting of the project steering group and is excited by the potential economic and employment benefits for the area.
