A Happy and Prosperous 2019 to all Dirleton Residents

A New Bus service for Dirleton
Prentice of Haddington are starting up a new service on Monday 28th January. It is a number 122 and is called the Gullane Circle and provides a vital connection for Dirleton with Haddington and a stop at the new Community Hospital. The circle route includes Haddington, Ballencrieff, Drem, Fenton Barns, Dirleton, Gullane, and Aberlady. There will be six buses a day.

Support Robert Baldrock's Campaign for Thrombectomy by contacting your MSP
25 stroke consultants have written to the Times backing our calls for the Health Secretary Jeane Freeman to urgently give stroke patients in Scotland access to Thrombectomy. Over 3,000 people have signed our Bring Back Thrombectomy petition so far - but I need your help to get more MSPs to push for action.
600 stroke patients across Scotland will miss out on this life-changing procedure this year unless something changes. Will you help me get your MSPs to back the campaign?

Winter Resilience Plans for Dirleton
Following last winter's Beast from the East, there has been action to coordinate contacts in this area in case we have a similar situation, when normal services are badly affected. Dirleton is taking the lead from larger communities nearby. Details can be be found on the Gullane Area Community Council website of crucial phone numbers and the location of gritting bins in Dlreton. Click here to view. There is also a meeting on Winter Resilience in North Berwick on Saturday 9th February in the Community Centre form 9.30 to 12 to which everyone is welcome.

Congratulations to Diana Murray for her CBE in the New Year's Honours List
In recognition of Diana's services to the cultural and historic environment of Scotland in which she has been involved for forty years and remains an ongoing, inspiring participant.

An Appeal has been lodged with the Scottish Government on the Castlemains Housing Development.
Queensberry Properties’s planning application was refused by ELC's Planning Committee in September. The developer has exercised their right to appeal against this decision and the DVA now has a very short time to submit their objections.
The DVA has the support of the Association of the Protection of Rural Scotland to fight this inappropriate suburban development that will detract from the settings of Dirleton Castle and our conse rvation village.
