A NEW office hub for professionals has opened south-east of Longniddry.

Wheatrig Business Hub has transformed an historic farm building into a modern office hub, with rentable desks, a communal kitchen, showering facilities and free parking.

The co-working space also has two sound-proof booths to accommodate those needing privacy for calls.

Owners Anna and William Thomson said: “Working from your spare room or dining room table is, as thousands will attest, far from easy.

“People have realised that they don’t need to be in a bland city centre office in order to be productive and that a lunchtime walk, or even a swim, is far more conducive to achievement.

“Without doubt, the physical environment here is truly inspiring, hopefully encouraging people to be creative, let their minds wander and truly enjoy the experience of work.”
