Pathhead and District Community Association  Update

Our AGM was well attended and we have a new larger commitee. However, we would still welcome any additional help - perhaps you could join our group of commitee supports, who help out at occasional events or with particular maintenance issues.


We are also looking to rekindle our refurbishment efforts and welcome input from anyone with experince of doing this. Please see the commitee page for contact details.


We would like to thank the band of villagers that painted the front of the hall and the porch. This was a mammoth effort and very much appreciated._______________________________________________________________

Local News

Members of PDCA attended a meeting with Midlothian Council about the proposed cuts to budgets and services. While the Councillors noted their objections to having to make them, the long and short of it is they are likely to make them all. The comment was that if one cut did not take place, another will have to be found elsewhere.


There was little further detail but there could be potentially significant adverse effects on the village. Cuts include charging much higher fees for after school clubs, taking the subsidy away from the bus (so there wont be one!), not maintaining the football pitch or pavilion, not maintaining roads or providing gritting etc, bins being collected only once every 3 weeks or not at all - all on top of curbs to health and social care support and to support for other basic services.


The PDCA will look to reply as a committee but everyone can contact the Council as individuals. Details about the proposals and to respond are here.


The consultation is open until Thursday 14 December 2017.
