I’ve lived in Haddington from Birth (the Vert was closed for new intakes, so actually born at the Western). I’ve been on the Community Council since around 2010 as the Community is all about what you put into it and take out it – it’s a two way involvement. My speciality is running the Lost Haddington Facebook pages – lots of old photos of all things Haddington!
