Families and individuals were invited to come and get involved with a harbour clean up event being organised by the Harbour Master.
On Saturday 7th May the cold winds and grey skies did not deter the collectors and many tyres, parking cones, plastic bottles and general detritus was removed from all three harbours as well as 10 bags of litter from around the harbours.
Well done to the litter pickers of all ages who helped on the day including the smallest helper who was only two weeks old.
Moorings are available in the historic Cromwell Harbour for the 2016 sailing season.

Dunbar Primary School Film
P2, P4 & P7 pupils worked with STRiVE Wellbeing on The Big Generation Catch project funded by the Heritage Lottery. The project explored the fishing heritage of Dunbar and captured memories of fishing from past to present.The whole P4 year group had the opportunity to contribute to the project, creating art work and building a small model fishing boat. A group of P7 children were also involved and learned how to use professional film equipment and produced their own film. P2 pupils helped to interview fishermen in the community.
The film will be used as part of an exhibition at the Dunbar Townhouse Museum.

FOUR historic Scottish buildings including an A-listed Edwardian mansion and an Old Custom House, as well as a 16th century harbour are to get facelifts worth over £650,000.
Historic Environment Scotland (HES) announced that the money will be used to restore and repair historic buildings, and the harbour after five projects won a share in the funding.
Cromwell Harbour in Dunbar, a 16th century safe haven for fishing and famous for its association with Oliver Cromwell, is to get £47,840 which will help Dunbar Harbour Trust repair the structure of the harbour, allowing its continued use as a working and leisure anchorage.
Cromwell himself funded repairs to the harbour in the 17th century and used it to supply his armies before the second battle of Dunbar
