Eyemouth’s newest social enterprise is up and running thanks to a £5000 cheque from Berwickshire Housing Association.

Sea the Change aims to create a happier, healthier, more sustainable community by encouraging people to get outside, to connect with others and make small changes to improve the environment.

BHA’s operations director Jean Gray, said: “This project is for the whole Eyemouth community. The ability to partner effectively with individuals and organisations - both inside and outside the community - is absolutely essential to ensure we can include the most isolated individuals as well as make a significant impact on our natural environment.”

Alice Fisher, executive director of Sea the Change, added: “We have lots planned – including our summer beach school programme. In September we will be delivering our ‘Sea Happiness’ well-being sessions and are looking at getting beach wheelchairs.

“We will drive Plastic Free Eyemouth and our small changes campaign is growing in momentum.”
