Clubs, Classes, Events & Support
The Lamp of Lothian Trust has had a long tradition of promoting and supporting various clubs and events. For young people, the Bridge Centre runs a Thursday Drop In Youth Cafe (6.30-9.30pm), open to all S1-S6 with free entry and WiFi. Table tennis and a pool table are also free to play. On Fridays (4.30-6.30pm), the Youth Club is open to all P5-P7 for £1 entry. Every second Friday the Bridge Centre runs Film Friday. They have comfy seats, a huge screen and a cinema style tuck shop! It's free to come along (5-8pm).
At Poldrate Arts & Crafts Centre, there is a wide variety of arts and crafts classes and self-help groups for adults over 16. Classes are affordable, small and friendly and accommodate a range of abilities. It’s a great place to meet other people interested in arts and crafts and spend time improving your skills, learning a new craft or just enjoying time doing something different.
We also support Lammermuir Larder, which is a local community food initiative set up to support individuals and families in the Haddington area who are struggling financially. Plus, The East Lothian Messenger, a local talking newspaper service for the blind and visually impaired, is delivered to the Bridge Centre.
