Have your say – on ELC budget.

How to do more with less. 

It’s not good news. ELC, like other local authorities, are having to work out “How to do more, with less.” In reality, hefty cuts in non-statutory provision are expected.

As the residents of East Lothian, your views are requested. Find the Budget consultation here. Find Shaping our Services here as ELC look ahead to the need to ‘do more with less’.

Hot on the heels of the Avengers in Edinburgh –

is Ironman 70.3 in East Lothian! 

Pencaitland is one of the locations which will have the event running through our picturesque environs.

Heading out to support the competitors on Sunday 2nd July will be worth getting up for – and cheering them on during the first visit to E. Lothian for this event.


They will cycle through Pencaitland after having already swum in Preston Links – and they will finish with a run through Holyrood Park. (I’m exhausted typing it!).


Sunday 2 July 2017

View road closures and timings here: imed access leaflet 2017 04 24: (see bottom of post for jpeg format).



Dressing up as Ironman or other superheroes is optional, but bound to spur them on I reckon 🙂
