East Lothian School Uniform Bank

East Lothian School Uniform Bank

c/o Carefree Kids, 9 Elphinstone Road, Tranent, East Lothian, EH33 2LG



East Lothian School Uniform Bank was set up by a local parent and has been further developed with support from Carefree Kids and Support from the Start.

Our aim is to ensure that every child in East Lothian has access to a suitable school uniform.

With this in mind, we are looking for donations of new or used good quality school uniform items.  We are asking parents that as it nears the end of term, if they have any good quality items that they no longer have the use for to consider donating them to us. 

We have also set up an Amazon Wishlist where new items can be purchased and donated to us –

The School Uniform Bank is in the process of building up a stock of school uniform items that will then be used to assist families who are referred on to us. 

We would be grateful if this information can be passed onto parents/carers of children attending your school. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any additional information.

With thanks

Riding of the Marches – Burgesses

Dear All

The Musselburgh Riding of the Marches 2016 has issued a last call for residents to apply to become Burgesses and get their name into the town’s record books.

The deadline for applications has been extended to June 30, and residents of Musselburgh, Inveresk, Wallyford and Whitecraig are invited to apply.

The title of Burgess dates back to 1682, when honorable townsfolk were invited to celebrate the ancient tradition of the Musselburgh Riding of the Marches. Every 21 years since then, during Riding of the Marches week, Musselburgh has admitted Burgesses, or worthy townspeople into its record book. Anyone over 18 with a connection to Musselburgh may apply to become an Honorary Burgess. This connection may be birth, education, employment or residence.

Successful applicants will be invited to the Burgess Ceremony held in the Brunton Hall on Monday 25th July where they will be presented with their certificate and their Burgess “Bap”.

Anyone wishing to be admitted as a Burgess should complete an application form (attached for convenience) and return by 30th June with a fee of £10 to the Riding of the Marches Information Centre, 73 High Street, Musselburgh.burgessapplication
