That the Parliament congratulates the staff, volunteers and service users at Harlawhill Day Care Centre in Prestonpans on reaching its 30th anniversary; believes that the much-loved Harlawhill has provided an excellent range of services and support for older people in Prestonpans over the last 30 years, and even continued its vital work in the local community during COVID-19 and the lockdown, by conducting outreach to those who were no longer able to physically access the centre, including offering telephone buddies, weekly treats, street entertainment on special days and delivering afternoon tea from local businesses; thanks the entire team at Harlawhill for the dedicated service they provide to older people in Prestonpans, and wishes them many more successful years at the heart of the local community.
