TWENTY special stones are to be placed throughout Dunbar as part of a fun treasure hunt.

The town’s Civic Week celebrations have been curtailed for a second year by coronavirus restrictions.

Volunteers behind the seven-day celebrations are still keen to mark the occasion though, with four exciting competitions taking place.

Eileen Moore, one of those involved with Dunbar Civic Week, said: “Last year’s home-based competitions worked so well.

“This year we are asking families to dress up their house, their window or a scarecrow to celebrate the Spirit of Dunbar.

“There are prizes for each of these three categories.

“We are looking for the very best display that captures something special about our town.

“Judging will take place over the weekend of June 12 and 13.”

And she added: “We are also really excited to be launching a Spirit of Dunbar Treasure Hunt.

“In Civic Week, June 12-19, children can go looking for 20 special stones located in town centre shop windows.

“Each one has been brilliantly painted by local artist, Mike Till, and each one has an image of something that we think represents a quality of our great town.

“There are prizes for the first 10 correct entries.”
