Child protection on the agenda at a meeting of Wingate Tenants and Residents Association

Have your say

Wingate Tenants and Residents Association is holding a community meeting to find out local views on local issues.

The meeting will take place on Monday, March 17, from 7pm to 8.30pm in Belhaven Church Stables.

John Hunter from national charity Children 1st will be talking about child protection in local communities and how local people can play a vital role in ensuring children can thrive in a safe environment and be protected from harm.

Sustaining Dunbar will also attend to talk about how Wingate TRA can develop its very own community resilience action plan and how they can help people to get on their bikes with local cycling ideas. WTRA are also keen to hear how they should spend and raise money in the local area so come along and give your views as all welcome.

Chairman Liz Wardhaugh said: “Child protection is an important issue and we all have a role to play and Children 1st programme and that can increase our resilience and skills. I am eager to hear what Sustaining Dunbar can offer Wingate TRA to ensure our local community can work

together to gain action and improve services. As an independent tenants and residents organisation we will always aim to influence local decisions and we need your help.

Just pop along as we always have a cuppa and biscuits”.

Free transport and assistance with childcare costs is available on request by contacting East Lothian Tenants and Residents Panel. Anyone who would like to get involved or find out further information can phone ELTRP on 0131665 9304 or email or
