2022/23 Preston Lodge HS Activity programme

Please find the 2022/23 Preston Lodge HS Activity programme here

We would encourage all parents/carers to discuss these opportunities with your child(ren) and sign them up to a couple of activities.

We have a wide range of activities starting over the next few weeks, as well as aspirations to start more.

Even if your child took part last term/year, please register them for the coming year.

All bookings can be made using the following link:

We are also keen to hear from any pupil who may be interested in learning or developing their Leadership Skills by helping out at a Prestonpans Primary activity or perhaps a Junior Preston lodge HS activity.

If your child is interested, please do not hesitate to contact Mark Urwin directly.

Alternatively, they can pop into my office in the PLHS PE Dept. to have a chat.

Prestonpans Pump Track – Children & Young People’s View

Prestonpans Pump Track – Children & Young People’s View

Pump Tracks offer a fun, safe space for all ages and abilities to enjoy a range of wheel based activities including BMX bikes, scooters, skateboards and rollerblades.

The Ormiston Pump Track is already much-used and valued by its community and we’re keen to work with our partners to help more areas enjoy these benefits.

Please find a link to the pump track information page on the ELC website – https://www.eastlothian.gov.uk/pump-tracks.

The site also contains a link to the Prestonpans pump track page which includes additional details on potential locations and a link to the public consolation for that area.

An early mapping exercise identified a number of Council-owned areas in Haddington that might be suitable for a pump track. Each location has its own unique attributes and opportunities, meaning that community views are essential to identifying the most appropriate space that could be progressed. The council is particularly keen to hear from children and young people and other groups who would use a pump track.  All projects are subject to further detailed design, planning permission and full project funding, with the views of local people vital to help shape the projects at concept stage.

A pump track is designed to create a safe, fun and inclusive playground for all wheels-based users regardless of age or gender. They provide a playground for kids and adults from beginners to professionals and a sustainable and fun-packed activity for everyone in the community.

We hope you will find time to look over the Prestonpans pump track page which includes additional details on potential locations and contribute to the public consolation for that area.
