Volunteers give park a new lease of life

Have your say

Work by a team of enthusiastic volunteers to restore Winterfield Park in Dunbar to its former glory is gathering momentum.

The group, which now has 62 members, is busy securing funding to improve the facility for the community.

Esther Hughes, secretary of the Friends of Winterfield, said new seats had been provided and flower beds created.

She said the exterior of the park looked “quite grotty” so repairs were carried out to the wall which was covered with concrete rendering dating back to the 1930s.

Funds for the project came from East Lothian Council’s Civic Pride Fund.
