The pink granite fountain, or at least what has been able to be recovered, now sits as the centrepiece of the Old Burial Ground.  Newhaven Heritage will titivate up and make better use of it by perhaps making a bird bath out of it or use it as a base for a suitable flower pot as part of a new garden design for this area.

CORONAVIRUS CRISIS

During this period of unknown duration, we have all been asked to minimise social contact and remain two metres away from each other.  Working in a garden area on your own is not only healthy exercise but is soothing therapy.  The plants don’t know we have a critical situation and will continue to grow — including the weeds. Please message Heather through our Facebook page or email her and she will discuss with you what you could do.

Four new murals prepared by the children of Victoria’s After School Club children from the Victoria Primary School After School Club working with an artist to create four murals inspired by the street names in Newhaven Village. The children heard some stories and then drew pictures and made clay pieces that were added to offer a 3D effect to the panels on Willowbank Row, Auchinleck Brae, Whale Brae and Peacock Court.


This was all made possible with a grant from the University of Edinburgh Community Fund. Storytelling and old photographs were used as props for the project. Later this year, the panels will be installed near the community garden on Newhaven Main Street and visitors and locals can read tales of the past while admiring the artwork of the current generation in bringing the street names alive.

NEW MURALS FOR NEWHAVEN

THE RETURN OF THE FOUNTAIN


The Devlin Drinking Fountain was donated by major trawler owners, T L Devlin, in 1910 for the Newhaven fishwives to have a refreshing drink of water before wending their way on their rounds. It sat at the Anchorfield end of the Promenade but was "lost" when Lindsay Road was widened in the late 60s. Now, after an absence of 50+ years, it has been returned to Newhaven thanks to the sharp eyes and generous heart of Brick and Stone, Broxburn.

Weather permitting (and sometimes even when it does not) you will usually find Heather in the gardens on a Sunday around 1pm.  Mindful of social distancing, you are welcome to stop and have a wee chat with her if out for your hour’s exercise.
