In partnership with HcL, West Lothian Council will launch a new Town Bus Service on Monday 5th April.  The routes will help people who live in the residential areas of Broxburn and Uphall to access key services such as shops and health in the town centre, as well as existing public transport links for onward travel.

Both 2A and 2B routes are planned around a two-hour loop between the town centre facilities, such as Strathbrock Partnership Centre, shops such Co-op and Lidl, and residential areas including Stankards/Houston Gardens, Crossgreen Triangle, Kirkhill, Loaninghill Road, Timmeryetts/Galmeilen, and Wyndford Avenue.  The routes in residential areas will be hail and ride and the vehicles are specially adapted for wheelchair users.

A PDF of the service routes and timetables can be viewed on the Public Transport section of the West Lothian Council website.

Broxburn Gala Day Committee have announced that, due to circumstances beyond their control, they have taken the decision to cancel Broxburn Gala Day 2021.  As Broxburn Gala Day is a fabulous community event, they want everyone attending to have fun and we safe.  The committee have taken this decision due to the coronavirus pandemic, restrictions still in place and booking entertainment being too difficult in this current situation.  As always they want to thank the Broxburn community and the whole of West Lothian for their continued support.  Fingers crossed for a Broxburn Gala Day in 2022.

Items worth over £250,000 are being shared throughout Scotland under the banner  'Lodge Buchan St John No 636 - National Covid-19 Care Initiative'.

Locally, food bag donations have been delivered to the following Care Homes for their residents to enjoy:

  • Almondell Court
  • Broxburn Nursing Home
  • Holmes Gardens
  • Middleton Hall Care Home

A donation, on behalf of Lodge Buchan St John No 636, of different types of bags, was made to West Lothian Foodbank, who use them to make up food orders to give out to those in most need.  The Broxburn Family Centre also received a large donation consisting of food bags, kids clothes and toys.

50 years ago today, Broxburn boy Russell Malcolm set off to enjoy a game of football between Rangers and Celtic. Sadly, 16-year-old Russell was one of sixty-six people who lost their lives in the crush on Stairway 13 at Ibrox Park. Thirty-three of the victims were under the age of 20.

From Saturday 26 December, West Lothian will be in level 4 and the measures to be followed are highlighted below.

The new winter lights really brighten up the corner of the Ecclesmachan Road. Broxburn and Uphall Town Centre Management Group purchased the lights to enhance the area. They will be on throughout the winter months.
