Your community group needs YOU!

Dalkeith and District Community Council is in need of new blood after a string of members stood down at a recent annual meeting.

Around half a dozen long-serving councillors resigned, while others, including chairman John Hackett, indicated a willingness to stay on for another one or two months.

Some outgoing members, sited personal reasons for leaving, but there was also 
an opinion that the community council had become nothing more than a “talking shop”.

If you are passionate about your community and wish to find out more about joining the group, call Mr Hackett on 0131 660 0459.
