Robin Hamilton of the Harbour Trust reports: "A Marine Scotland Fisheries Grant of £107,500 has been awarded to the Trust to be spent mainly by the end of March 2019. This is for repairs to the harbour walls, in particular the North Wall of Victoria Harbour where surveys carried out by the Trust's consultants have identified the highest priorities, both on the outside and inside of this wall.

Discussions have started on how this grant can be best used taking into account the tides and swell and variable weather conditions likely in February and March. Flexibility in timing and work will be essential.

The Trust would like to thank Marine Scotland for their on-going support and much needed funding to keep the harbour safe."

 

Strong walls keep us all secure and productive.
