Dear Parent/Carer

Recently, we published evidence that nasal irrigation with salt water helped reduce the cold in adults. We have also shown the mechanism for how salt water helps with the common cold when applied on the nasal epithelium. Our research showed that cells use the chloride from the salt water to fight viral infections.  Hence, we are now testing if salt water nose drops helps children fight the cold.

If you have a child under 7 years of age, you may be able to join the fight.

The Children’s Hospital in Edinburgh are doing a study of salt water nose drops to see if it helps get rid of the cold faster.

Your child does not need to have a cold right now to take part!

You can join right now by calling/texting 07973657457 for an appointment to sign up and to be taught what to do the next time your child has a cold.

Your child does not need to attend.

Families completing the study will receive travel expenses and a £30 voucher to compensate for any inconvenience.

Haddington Pump Track

Haddington Pump Track – Public Consultation

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 Haddington pump track page which includes additional details on potential locations and a link to the public consultation for that area (closes 31st July).

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.

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. We are 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.
