Commemorative jubilee medals and a school trip, for Innerwick & Stenton pupils

Jubilee Medals

With the Queen having recently celebrated her historic Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne, school children from Innerwick Primary School and Stenton Primary School received commemorative medals so that they can remember this special time in future years.

Community Windpower provided over £600 for the purchasing of these medals, as a part of our community benefits fund distributed to our wind farm host communities. The medals are uniquely personalised with the child’s name and also the insignia of their school, an owl, on the reverse side. Community Windpower were delighted to help out, and these medals will serve as a wonderful reminder of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.

Community Windpower also lent a hand with Innerwick Primary’s trip around Dunbar, by providing £250 to fund costs associated with the trip. The pupils visited sea-themed murals at Dunbar’s Victoria Harbour, which had been beautifully crafted by East Lothian’s own schoolchildren. Whilst at the harbour, they met the harbourmaster, who taught them about the harbour’s role in Dunbar’s economic and social history.

Following the harbour visit, the pupils visited the nearby John Muir Country Park. The park is named after John Muir, a famous naturalist and geologist who was born in Dunbar. It is protected by various designations, making it a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Protection Area.

Anouska Woods, BeGreen Dunbar’s Community Coordinator, said: “We were delighted to help, alongside Community Windpower, with this request from the schools in the nearby area. We hope that the Innerwick primary pupils enjoyed their trip around Dunbar, and that all the primary schoolchildren treasure their Jubilee medals for years to come.”
