SPRING colours have been brought to North Berwick thanks to the efforts of a local gardening group and two local businesses.

Under East Lothian Council’s ‘Spaces for People’ programme, wooden planters have been placed on the south side of High Street’s east end, resulting in the road being narrowed and the pavement widened.

And local gardening group North Berwick in Bloom, which oversees the maintenance of many planters and green spaces in the town, has refreshed them and added some colourful spring flowers.

The plants were donated by Merryhatton Garden Centre and bags of compost by David Turnbull, of Turnbull’s Home Hardware. North Berwick in Bloom volunteers planted the flowers in the wooden planters.

Libby Morris, chair of North Berwick in Bloom, said: “Businesses on High Street were keen to brighten things up before their opening and North Berwick in Bloom were pleased to assist in this community effort.”
