Issue 3 ~ October 2013


Welcome to the third edition of the Musselburgh Anchor! Again, we see more businesses turning to the magazine to promote their services, while those that are already advertising report an increase in business from you the reader. Fantastic! What’s more is that resident feedback has been so very positive with folk telephoning and emailing to say what a wonderful resource they think the magazine is, and to give suggestions. It’s all appreciated.

You’ll notice that we have our regular columns with locals John Brand, Morag Cameron and David Tibbs,writing about monuments, ceremonies, and racing car history in the movie ‘Rush’. There’s acknowledgement for those who observe Halloween in a too-scary-for-me book review and trivia. We have a delicious hot chocolate recipe in time for the weather turning, some excellent tax advice and architectural information, as well as a steadily growing community news section. There’s a beautiful community editorial from the Musselburgh Floral Art Club, and last issue I mentioned the Hollie Day Centre for older residents, well this month you can read all about the Centre and the wonderful activities going on there. See too an important message from the Scottish Fire and Safety department about how you can get your free fire and safety check.

These community business magazines wouldn’t be what they are without you, so please do let me know your thoughts, write in to recommend a business, and do tell business owners that you got their details from the Musselburgh Anchor if you use a service from here.

A note about the website too: You may have noticed that I’ve added a section called ‘Find a Business‘. An added bonus of advertising regularly with us is that your business will be represented here, with a direct link to your own website or contact details. See the new pages here.

Well, it’s a wee bit grey out there, and that hot chocolate is looking good, so until next issue…
