HADAS is short for Haddington and District Amenity Society.

We have been around since 1996 and are still going strong! We celebrate, promote and protect the Royal Burgh of Haddington but the area we cover includes Gifford, Garvald, Athelstaneford, Pencaitland, Humbie and East Linton.

We are a a 100% voluntary organisation. We have a hard-working committee and over 100 members from Haddington and surrounding area. All our members share the same passion and love for the area we cover.

We have charitable status with a membership and committee who work to encourage high standards of architecture and town planning, undertake projects to repair, restore or replace features and promote interest in our causes through publicity.
