Tranent: In-person surgeries with councillors return
TWO Tranent, Wallyford and Macmerry councillors have returned to in-person surgeries.
Councillor Lee-Anne Menzies will hold surgeries on the third Wednesday of every month in Elphinstone, at Roots and Fruits, 1-2pm, and in Tranent, at the George Johnstone Centre, 2.30-3.30pm.
Surgeries will be held on the third Thursday of every month in Whitecraig Village Hub, 1-2pm; in Wallyford Community Centre, 2.30-3.30pm; and in Macmerry Miners Club, 4-5pm.
A final surgery is held on the third Saturday of every month in Gladsmuir Parish Church, 9.30-10.30am.
Speaking at a meeting of Tranent and Elphinstone Community Council, Ms Menzies said: “I think in-person surgeries are very important for engaging with people.
“I’ve been really busy over Christmas and in January with calls and enquiries from the public but I think holding these in-person surgeries helps give people a place to go.
“I hope to see as many people as I can at my monthly surgeries.”
