Three kilograms of seeds were planted by volunteers at North Berwick Trust's community hub site on Monday.

North Berwick Trust hosted the community event on Monday (May 8) across their two sites off Pilgrim’s Way to the south of the town.

Run in partnership with North Berwick in Bloom as part of The Big Help Out Volunteer Monday coronation celebrations, over 60 members of the public braved the rain to come together and sow flower seeds on the Trust’s Community Hub site and also at the entrance to the North Berwick Trust Park.

Three kilograms of mixed seeds were scattered with native varieties which will attract butterflies and bees. These include chrysanthemum, cornflower, poppy, zinnia, marigold and lupin.

A spokesperson for North Berwick Trust said: “Local residents are looking forward to enjoying the fruits on their labour in the coming months with beautiful floral displays. The flowers will brighten the entrance to the park and provide a pleasant outlook onto the Community Hub site.

“Future development options for the Community Hub site are being considered by North Berwick Trust.

“The Trust extents its thanks to North Berwick Community Council, Bass Rock Community Group and the Rotary Club of North Berwick for their assistance on the day.”
