We’re very grateful to Committee member, Judy Miller, for taking time to plant her surplus of strawberry plants along the south wall of the park. This is part of our contribution to Incredibly Edible Dunbar initiative (https://www.facebook.com/incrediblyedibledunbar). As with all newly-planted areas of the park, please keep your dog off and remember that people may want to eat the strawberries that these plants, eventually, produce!
What a super day we had at our annual dog show! Fine, warm weather and circa 30 individual dogs competing; a successful raffle with some super prizes and many happy faces in the ring and crowd. Well done everyone for making our fun dog show such a success!
Show winners to be announced once we’ve had time to process the data.

We’re ready for the fun dog show tomorrow morning. It’s a celebration of our open space’s new “protected” status as a Queen Elizabeth II Field; through Fields in Trust and a chance for Dunbar to promote responsible dog ownership in our public open spaces.
Come along for a good day out. We have rosettes, sashes and a prize for the best in show.
Entry is a very modest £1 per class and we have a brilliant raffle prize for dog lovers – a dog obedience lesson with Dog Trainer Heather Walsh worth £35! Just 50p for a strip of five tickets. Free poo bags too.
Come and support your open space as part of Dunbar Civic Week!
Crisps 50p, drinks 20p. Ice creams by Sunny Sundaes
