A big welcome to all those who have recently joined Sustaining Dunbar. 
We are very aware that there are very few opportunities for our members to get together at the moment. We hope it won't be too long before we can resume some in-person social events and workshops. 

If you would like to get involved with organising such events , please get in touch:
With the easing of Covid restrictions, we have now been able to restart regular volunteer sessions at Belhaven Community Garden -on Saturday afternoons, 2-4pm. If you are interested to find out more or organise a tour of the garden, just email:
What Next? Planning our Future
A plan to guide our recovery from the pandemic and help the area be home to thriving people, where nature flourishes, and where we live, work and play in ways that respect the wellbeing of all people and the whole planet. We hope to be able to publish this plan by the end of June. Yvonne Wemyss, Sustaining Dunbar's community engagement manager explains.
