Homebuilder proves it can walk the walk for Gullane community by supporting local campaign

Property PR sets CALA on the right path to media success | Holyrood PR

After 15 years of campaigning, Gullane residents are one big step closer to a safer route between their town and the nearest train station.

Before the Drem-Gullane Path Campaign began, accessing the train station from Gullane proved a dangerous pursuit, with the only viable route being alongside the busy and usually unlit main road.

Now, thanks to support from CALA Homes (East), work has begun on a four-mile path from the centre of Gullane to Drem.

Property PR experts at Holyrood PR worked together with CALA Homes, local campaigners, and residents to organise a photo call to celebrate the start of the path.

Issuing the photos with a press release drafted with input from third parties, including local MSPs, resulted in a flurry of media coverage across regional, national and specialist press in the paper, on the radio and online.

Some of the highlights included:

  • Over 11 minutes of discussion on BBC Radio Scotland: Out of Doors show
  • Major features in the regional press, such as East Lothian Courier, Edinburgh Evening News and Edinburgh Live
  • Key coverage across construction titles, such as Project Scotland, Construction Index and Scottish Construction Now.
  • Total Opportunities to See: 397,361
