What about Woodburn?

Every week I buy this paper and every week there are articles about all these great things happening or things opening in various Midlothian villages.

The thing I never read is anything happening in Woodburn. The “Main Street” looks like a disaster area, roads are falling apart and there are now no council-run facilities since the leisure centre was demolished and replaced with houses. I don’t know if Woodburn has a community council but if they do I would be grateful to hear from them. Villages here and there are getting all sorts of community grants for things. If Woodburn has, what was it spent on? If not, why not?
