Help is at hand for people in Midlothian who want to improve their community, but do not know where to start.

The charity Health in Mind is bringing an information event on social enterprise projects to Bonnyrigg next week.

A social enterprise is a business whose profits are used to benefit the community and provide opportunities for people to improve their knowledge, skills and confidence.

Schemes can help to improve mental health and wellbeing.

Possible projects include community cafés, charity shops or allotments growing fresh fruit and vegetables for sale. If you would like to be involved, have any thoughts to share or just want to find out more, head along to the information event at 1pm on Tuesday, August 30 at the Orchard Centre, Lothian Street.

For more information, call Emily Steedman on 0131-663 1616 or e-mail simonmiller@health-in-mind.org.uk.
