North Berwick Police Station has welcomed a blooming renovation after multiple groups in the town came together to spruce up the outside of the building.

It had fallen into a slightly sorry state due, not helped by local businesses being forced to place their wheelie bins there.

But local groups were determined to bring this part of High Street back to life and arranged the repainting of the front of the building, provided new flower hanging baskets, and relocated the wheelie bins.

Libby Morris, chairwoman of North Berwick in Bloom, was determined to bring the police station back to how it once looked, praising all involved for getting it spruced up in time for the Britain in Bloom contest.

She said: “Renovating the outside of the police station was a good team effort.

“Police Scotland arranged to have all the walls, windows and doors painted, East Lothian amenity team provided the window boxes and plants, and North Berwick in Bloom arranged for special window bars to be made to make the boxes safe.

“We received a grant from North Berwick Trust which helped to fund it all – helped by North Berwick Community Council and East Lothian Council.

“A great community effort!”
