Speaking after the AGM, Martin Whitfield MP said:

“This morning I was delighted to attend the AGM of the excellent Home-Start East Lothian, which does such wonderful work with families with young children across the county.

“It was good to have the opportunity of an update on some of the charity’s latest developments and hear from volunteers about their involvement in its important work.

“I will always do all I can to support Home-Start’s work here and look forward to helping the project celebrate its 20th anniversary next year.”
