Check out the above video.  I can’t seem to embed it but it’s worth watching. It was used at our first Challenge for Change Conference for all East Lothian Council managers back in April.

It certainly captures something of the magic of East Lothian and the varous communities which make it such a vibrant place.

We held our second such conference on Wednesday entitled A Space to Grow. I think all of us present are committed to improving the service we provide to the people of East Lothian.

The key to the conference was the feedback from the 5 themed working groups which looked at:
