We received an email this morning about a bike being stolen from a 13 year old boy.

Following an accident, he returned home to get his bleeding hand cleaned up, leaving his bike at the back door to the house.  His parents dressed the wound but were not too sure if he was OK so decided to take him up to hospital to get his hand looked at.

Just before leaving he remembered his bike and asked his mum to put it into the garage for him. She was just about to do this when he came screaming through the house saying that he had just seen someone come into the back garden and walk away with his bike. Unfortunately, he didn’t get a good look at the person because the street lights were out, so it was pitch black at the back of the house.

Just to round off the evening, at the hospital they found he had broken his finger. He had to have the finger nail removed and stitches!

The bike is a rare Chrome Haro BMX worth about £450. If you are in Tranent or the surrounding area, please keep your eyes open and report any sightings to the Police. If the bike is found, it might go some way to restore this young lad’s faith in the community.

As I’m sure you already know, tomorrow is a HUGE day for East Lothian FM. After honing our Outside Broadcast skills during Haddington on Skates at Christmas, we’ve been looking forward to the opportunity to do it all again.

That day comes tomorrow when we will be broadcasting LIVE from the Fraser Centre in Tranent. Their Open Day is open to all from 10am to 4pm, so why not pop in and see what they’ve managed to do to the place and their plans for the future. Of course, you’re welcome to ask us for a tune or two at the same time!

The Special Treat?

ELFM HQ has just informed the web team that we will be BROADCASTING LIVE throughout our evening Fundraiser.

That’s right. From 8pm ’till midnight, even our listeners from foreign shores will be able to join in the fun. With LIVE MUSIC from COOL RECEPTION and Many Friends, this is going to be a night to remember.

We will do our best to keep all our systems up and running, so if you can’t be there in person, you’ll be able to stay up to date using our Chatroom, Facebook Page, Twitter (@eastlothianfm) or Email. Since this is a Fundraiser, we will also be adding a small Paypal button to our website, just to give you the chance to add a little to our funds.

If you’re in the area, we do have a few tickets left. So if you want to come along;

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone there and hearing from those that can’t be. So, join in and let’s have FUN 🙂

We’ve been made aware of a rather bizarre rumour. Someone has been telling stories about our Fundraiser being cancelled.

This Saturday, 9th June – East Lothian FM will be spending the day at the Fraser Centre in Tranent.

The Fraser Centre are holding an open day between 10am and 4pm. During the day, East Lothian FM will be broadcasting LIVE from the centre.

Then, in the evening, the tables turn and the Fraser Centre is being given over to East Lothian FM so that we can run a fundraiser.

The whole day promises to be a fantastic event and we just can’t wait to get stuck in!

Lothian and Borders Police LogoLothian and Borders Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious road collision in East Lothian.

The incident happened around 2am yesterday (Sunday) on the A199 Haddington to Dunbar Road, near to the junction with Over Hailes Farm in East Linton.

An orange Daewoo Matiz was travelling west along the road when the 21-year-old female driver lost control of the vehicle.

The car then crossed the roadway and mounted the verge on the opposite side before colliding with a wall and overturning.

Police and ambulance service attended and the driver and another 21-year-old woman, who was a passenger, were taken to the ERI after sustaining non life-threatening neck, back and arm injuries.

Officers are asking any motorists who were on the road at the time and witnessed the collision to come forward.

A police spokesman said:

Both women were incredibly fortunate to escape from the vehicle without serious injury and we are now carrying out a full investigation to determine the circumstances surrounding this incident.

Anyone who can assist with our enquiries is asked to contact police immediately.
