Heavy rain caused flooding - 13/06/2019

There was no access to Woollands and Stottencleugh Farms when the roads flooded due to heavy rain on 13th June 2019. East Lothian Council had issued an Amber Flood Alert - “Heavy rain expected. In place until 3pm on Thursday. Water courses expected to have heavy flow between Lammermuir hills and the sea. Main vulnerable area is West Barns around the Biel Burn. However, other areas could be affected, especially if near water courses or low lying. Watch out for vulnerable neighbours.” Resilience Single Points of Contact Janice Hanvidge and Gordon Simpson kept in contact with the East Lothian multi-agency ‘Flood Group’ and this update and the pictures were submitted for future planning after the event.



Mid-Summer Bike Ride - 29th June 2019

Mid-summer bike ride - Saturday 29th June 2019


Steve Findlay and Chris Bruce invite you to join the next Oldhamstocks Village Bike Ride.  With three rides now under our belts, we are proposing a slightly different approach for our next adventure.


This time, there will be a choice of two social rides:


A loop of 10 miles off-road on little known tracks (bring your hybrid or mountain bike)


A loop of 20 miles on quiet roads (bring your hybrid or road bike with skinny tyres)


Both rides will start and finish at The Store, Thistlycross at 10.00 a.m.


Both rides will be at a steady, easy pace and will (hopefully!) finish at about the same time - perhaps 11.30, followed with a scone or similar at The Store.


As usual, children should be accompanied by an adult as we can’t take responsibility for unaccompanied riders.


Lifts for riders and bikes available at 09.30 in Oldhamstocks, and then back to the village when its all over.  Or just turn up ready to go from the Store at 10.00.


Please let Chris Bruce know if you are planning to come along - and particularly if you need a lift - chris_a_bruce@hotmail.com
