Great loss to East Haven

East Haven has lost a great friend and neighbour in Hugh Scott who sadly died last weekend. Hugh and Helen have lived in East Haven for around 13 years and were both involved in the East Haven 800 celebrations. It was Hugh who first spotted our boat 'The Sisters', wrecked on the beach in St Andrews. Hugh and a group of other residents dug the boat out early one morning in June 2013 and brought her back to East Haven for restoration. Hugh was a talented and multi-skilled individual who 'kept us right' on many of our projects.  Earlier in the year, his sheer determination and a refusal to be dominated by his illness drove Hugh to work in all weathers making repairs to the boats ready for our 'summer season'. We were delighted that he was able to attend the Beautiful Scotland Awards Ceremony on 10th September and receive a gold award on behalf of East Haven. Hugh will be fondly remembered and leaves a great legacy to the village.
