Whatton Lodge Summer Season Breaks 2022

Each year Lothian Mineworkers Convalescent Home offers up to two hundred people the opportunity to take a ten day residential respite break at Whatton Lodge.  These breaks are targeted at elderly and disabled members of the community who would not have the opportunity to take a break otherwise.  The ten day breaks are spread over eight separate intakes throughout the summer months and include accommodation, meals, entertainment and companionship.  Although Whatton Lodge is a Miner Convalescent Home you do not need to be a former miner to access the breaks, as these opportunities are also open to widows, families and relatives, as well as all members of local miner’s welfare clubs & other charitable social club members.

The dates for this year’s summer season of break is as follows:

Intake 1 – 31st May – 10th June 2022

Intake 2 – 14th June – 24th June 2022

Intake 3 – 28th June – 8th July 2022

Intake 4 – 12th July – 22nd July 2022

Intake 5 – 26st July – 5th August 2022

Intake 6 – 9th August – 19th August 2022

Intake 7 – 23rd August – 2nd September 2022

Intake 8 – 6th September – 16th September 2022
