Sunny Dunny Derby proves a great success

Civic Week Dunbar
Civic Week Dunbar

The people of Dunbar really embraced the efforts to revitalise the Civic Week celebrations and turned out in huge numbers to enjoy the Big Weekend in the town’s High Street.

The teams taking part in the first ever Sunny Dunny Derby really got into the spirit of it with hilarious carts, fancy dress and good dose of lavatorial humour! Thanks to the Fire Brigade for helping cool down the runners!

There was great turnout out for all the events on Big Weekend Sunday and with the sun continuing to shine all day the Fun Day saw hundreds of people crowding into Lauderdale Park in the afternoon.

The organisers would like to encourage the community to think what else could be done to keep improving and extending Civic Week. It’s been great fun and really rewarding for everyone involved in revamping Civic Week and anyone with ideas and/or a bit of time is welcome to get in touch and join in. There will be online and printed feedback surveys circulating over the summer but in the meantime please contact the organisers on
