Dunbar will have plenty to keep visitors amused this summer as Dunbar Traders Association has organised a series of events from giant kite flying to history tours.
Historian and author Roy Pugh has already started his weekly Friday tours around places of local interest on the High Street, including Tolbooth House, East Lothian Bank, the Volunteer Hall etc. However, some of the most interesting places and stories are the named and unnamed closes in the High Street often named after public spirited individuals, shop keepers and traders.
The tours begin at the Sparkly Frog, No 92 High Street on Fridays at 2pm but can be arranged for other days by appointment at 48 hours’ notice. Contact e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01368 865531 between 10am and 4pm.
Giant kite flying displays will take place in Winterfield Park between June 16 and August 25 on designated days and among the Dunbar Civic Week (June 18-26) events there will be window competitions for children aged 16 years and under, and a host of other fun activities for all ages.
