We are delighted with our Silver Gilt award from the Beautiful Scotland judging panel, in this, our second year of entering the competition. Despite the slow start to the summer, the judges were impressed with our links to John Muir and working with so many local groups to make the town a more beautiful place to be.
Derek Robertson, Chief Executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful, commented, “East Lothian has excelled this year, with Dunbar being bestowed the Silver Gilt Award in the Coastal Town Category; Blooming Haddington awarded Gold, and scooping the overall win in the Medium Town Category and East Lothian Council receiving the Wright Sustainability Award. I would like to congratulate them all for their efforts to make Scotland a cleaner, greener place for us all to enjoy today and tomorrow.”
