SUSTAINING North Berwick held its first meeting of 2022 in the Scottish Seabird Centre on Sunday, welcoming several new members who had recently moved to the town.

The community group looks at sustainable, ecological living on a local level, and is part of the nationwide Climate Cafe movement.

Member Ruth Hunter-Pepper highlighted the group’s successful COP26 meet on the beach last November, and spoke of plans for a March event, which will feature businesses and organisations such as energy companies and environmental charities, and provide advice and guidance on ecological living to visitors.

Member Kathy Duncan also spoke about the group’s tree-planting programme and her work to help create a wildlife garden ‘trail’ through the town.

Ruth also expressed her gratitude to the Seabird Centre for the use of its cafe, and a hope that the two organisations could work together in future on local sustainability projects.
