Fin in North Berwick
Mother and daughter, Jane Symon and Lesley Anderson have jointly written and illustrated a children’s book set in East Lothian. It was after the arrival of the first grandchild, Glen, that the pair wanted to create stories reflecting life in beautiful East Lothian, starting in their hometown of North Berwick. The adventures of young Fin, the main character, will take him across the county. It is hoped that children living in (or visiting) East Lothian will enjoy finding the places mentioned in his escapades. The towns and landscape of East Lothian with the stunning backdrop of the Forth, provide numerous opportunities for Fin and his friends, with trusty dog Gus, to explore.
