Something we are very keen on at The Mart East Linton is being a central part of the community. We don't want to be seen just as a local farm shop we want to be much more involved in things! With this in mind, we will be increasing the size of our "local noticeboard". The new location for the notice board will be next to our brand new toilets that are due to open soon.
This series of blogs will be part of the community noticeboard, I will pick up to 5 things that are being advertised on the board each month that are happening in and around East Linton, East Lothian or Edinburgh. I will publish the post on Facebook and Instagram as well as posting directly to our website. If you'd like your event to be published in our monthly blog we will need access to images you are using to promote it (sorry in advance for the lack of pictures this in this blog).
