Battle Visitor Centre Volunteers Sought - May to September

Portakabin Arrives at Meadowmill for the Battle Trust

The Trustees of the Battle of Prestonpans 1745 are presenting a six month 'trial' exhibition centre for visitors at Meadowmill at the foot of the well known Battle Bing. The interpretaion boards at the top are being restored by East Lothian Council, extra litter / dog fouling bins installed and additional directional signage created by the RAC.

Kristine Cunningham, the Executive Trustee in charge of the Portakabin Exhibition throughout the summer months, looks happy as it arrives safely, donated for the period by fellow Trustee Malcolm Scott [Sincere thanks Malcolm!]
