Portpatrick Harbour Wins Dumfries & Galloway Life Award!

27th Jul 2016

We are thrilled that Portpatrick Harbour has won the Dumfries & Galloway Life Award for Best Community Project 2015. The project was recognised for making a difference to improving life in their community. 

Portpatrick Harbour Community Benefit Society was formed in July 2015 with the aim of saving and securing Portpatrick Harbour into full community ownership for the benefit of all. Working closely with Community Shares Scotland, £103k was raised through community shares in Autumn 2015. This project will now bring stability and economic benefit to the local community and will be financially viable and self sustainable, preserving this historic asset for the benefit of current and future generations.
