East Lammermuir Community Council is angry about the decision to cut out the Innerwick loop which goes round Thurston Manor, Innerwick and Crowhill for buses leaving Dunbar at 1610 and 1820 on weekdays. Instead the bus stops at the lay-by near Torness.

Other changes include weekday travel to and from Berwick – passengers can get to Berwick earlier but the last return journey calling at Innerwick is the 2.15pm from Berwick, the following two buses leaving Berwick bypassing the village. There are no direct services at all to Berwick on Saturday.

Perryman’s confirmed they are happy to listen to any proposals.
