VOLUNTEERS are being urged to come forward to ensure that this year’s Haddington Festival proves a success.

The annual summer community celebration, which is run by Haddington Events Group, gets under way on May 28.

An appeal was made at a meeting of Haddington and District Community Council for potential volunteers to come forward to help with the parade or marshalling the event.

Therese Laing, chairwoman of the community council, suggested they would need “about 10” to help with the parade.
