Scots rocker Fish dives in to help restaurant
Scots rocker Fish is making a splash in his home town by playing a special gig to raise cash for his favourite restaurant after it was wrecked by flooding.
Fish was gutted when the 17th century Waterloo Bistro in Haddington, East Lothian, was left water-logged after the nearby River Tyne flooded in July, causing hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of damage.
Now the 54-year-old former Marillion frontman is wading in to help owner and pal Paul Kinnoch conquer the recurring problem.
He is hosting a one-off acoustic gig in the town’s St Mary’s Parish Church on September 28 to raise funds for a flood protection scheme.
Fish, above, said: “During the flood two-and-a-half feet of water had come in and completely wiped out the restaurant.
“The flooding is an ongoing problem. There needs to be action taken so we’re doing a benefit gig to try to set up a flood protection scheme.”
