The final pieces of the jigsaw for the East Haven 800 celebrations have fallen into place just in time for the village’s celebratory extravaganza.

Tomorrow (Saturday) the residents and friends of Easthaven will come together to celebrate their 800th anniversary with a full day of activities, music, food, fun and culture.

One of the projects undertaken to mark this momentous event was the creation of special celebration bunting.

Each panel has been designed individually and produced by a host of different groups and individuals from throughout Angus.

Thanks to Carnoustie Twinning Association (CTA) that bunting has now been completed with a little help from France. Max Fordyce, CTA, presented the final pieces to CTA chairman Roger Jeffery. Max explained: “The last two pieces of the ‘jigsaw’ were supplied by members of the community of Maule, France which is ‘twinned’ with Carnoustie.

“Throughout its 800 years East Haven has been known by many names and amongst those was ‘Mauleshaven’ reflecting a connection with the family owning the land at that time.”

Also taking place during the celebrations tomorrow will be a guided walk from the RSPB, cooking demonstrations, and live music from local soloist Priya Ferguson and also well-known musician Christine Kydd.

The event will officially kick off at 10.45 a.m. with Angus Provost Helen Oswald introducing the premiere of music specially commissioned for the occasion. Visit Our Easthaven on Facebook for more details.
