The AGM was an opportunity to reflect on the changes to the Newtongrange Community Council and prepare for an increasing membership as more in the community want to support the village’s development.
Following the AGM, and agreement on the NCC objectives being fit for purpose, a condensed meeting raised actions about the formation of the Newtongrange Masterplan steering group, double roundabout repainting, reduced bus services, park seating.
Ahead of Remembrance Sunday, attandance at this meeting was a clear indicator of community frustration about the state of our public spaces and willingness to contribute to village development. Cllr Jim Muirhead was in attendance to hear it first hand.
Attendance expected from Gareth Davies with an update on Masterplan and responses expected on library hours, weeds and flowerbed upkeep
Open forum with Christine Graham MSP, to raise local issues – village centre development, bus and train services expected to be highlighted
