East Coast Harbour Race launched

New‘East Coast Harbour’ race for Musselburgh

East Coast Restaurant and Fish & Chips Takeaway on North High Street in Musselburgh is joining forces with Musselburgh Racecourse to launch the new ‘East Coast Harbour’ handicap on Tuesday 25th July to help raise funds for The Fisherrow Harbour & Seafront Association.

Since its launch in 2018, The Fisherrow Harbour & Seafront Association has been working with East Lothian Council to improve the harbour and seafront in Musselburgh for the benefit of the community, local people and visitors through a series of ongoing fundraising events and voluntary activities, including the Fisherrow Harbour Festival.

The organisers of the new ‘East Coast Harbour Race’ hope that the new event will help raise awareness of The Fisherrow Harbour & Seafront Association and allow them to progress their ambitious plans with a much-needed funding boost.

Planned activity includes essential harbour repairs and developments as well as expansion of existing initiatives such as the popular community-adopted planters and wheel-chair friendly picnic tables.

East Coast Restaurant and East Coast Fish & Chips Takeaway is located just two minutes’ walk from Fisherrow Harbour and Musselburgh beach on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

David Wilkie Chair of The Fisherrow Harbour & Seafront Association (FHSA), said:

“We value this opportunity to connect with two of Musselburgh’s most popular and successful businesses – East Coast and Musselburgh Racecourse – and appreciate the support that they are offering to FHSA.

We will put any funds raised directly into projects which benefit the local area, to realise our vision to develop Fisherrow as a welcoming and accessible seaside resort with fantastic water-based and seafront activities, and look forward to working together in the future.”
