Gorebridge - a village with a past and with a future

There are many new houses being built in Gorebridge. Gorebridge Cares hopes to welcome new people to our community. We want better facilities for the young folk here, improve job prospects by promoting training and education. We want a lot for everyone, but will start with a little......

A Community Park for Gorebridge -

The Auld Gala Park



A Community Park for Gorebridge, right in the heart of the village! Gorebridge Cares' plans are as big as your imagination – a safe cycle/walk to school, which hopefully will be extended to link the new Beacon, the Church, Arniston Rangers Junior Football park; a play area for the little ones, an area for ball games, a place where the not so young can sit and have a blether and perhaps a game of draughts in the park. A beautiful place to sit and smell the flowers. [A little fruit forest for Cath as well!].


At last Phase I of the park is complete and as you will see below the transition is quite amazing. Thanks go to Midlothian Council for sticking with the project - we got there. Visit the Auld page.
