Providing support and guidance across local communities

The Community Wardens across East Lothian are in the frontline in supporting local communities during the coronavirus pandemic.

The high-visibility officers are continuing to investigate complaints of graffiti, stray dogs, fly-tipping, low-level antisocial behaviour, residential noise, littering and dog fouling; however, in recent weeks they have extended their service to support Police Scotland in the enforcement of social distancing regulations by providing advice to members of the public in towns and villages throughout the county. They are also working in tandem with other Council Departments in ensuring that social distancing guidance is being complied with on retail premises.

The seven strong team are currently supporting local resilience efforts in delivering public donations to the local Foodbank as well as assisting with the delivery of essential supplies to vulnerable members of our communities.

Wardens operate seven days a week and can be contacted via the Council’s 24 hours Antisocial Behaviour Helpline on 01875 824 307 or email
