A priority for residents approaching our octocentenary was to improve the gateway to East Haven and strengthen our identity as an ancient fishing community. People also wanted to do something to distract the eye from the sea
of tarmacadam and concrete in the village square. People suggested that we should acquire a small fishing boat to plant flowers in at the entrance to the village.
East Haven resident Hugh Scott donated and refurbished a small fishing dinghy which residents decided should be painted blue to reflect our maritme theme for 2014. Charles Gist and Dick Kelman planted it with spring bulbs to provide a colourful display in March/April
Many thanks to Hugh, Ian, Charles and Dick and Angus Council roads department for their advice and support in enabling us to complete this project.
