Millenium Trust Drives Sports Complex Project Forward

AN EXCITING sports complex costing over 3 million is being lined up for the Belmont and Ochtrelure area of Stranraer.

A meeting is to be held on Friday of next week to set up the Stranraer Millenium Trust - the group that will drive forward the project.

The complex aimed at the whole of Wigtownshire will feature an indoor bowling rink, a football pitch, together with a stadium for up to 300 supporters to Scottish Football Association standards, and a community facility.

Chairman of the project's steering group Sam Scobie revealed to the 'Free Press' this week:

"It is an exciting project and one that the town has not seen for a long time.

"It will involve a fair amount of work as we are talking in figures of 3 million plus but we are looking to involve various funding agencies".

Work has been on-going by the steering group for months but they are now ready to take the project to the public and create the new Trust.

Plans for the development will be on show at Belmont Primary School from Tuesday to Thursday and a public meeting will be held in the school on Friday at 7 p.m.

Mr Scobie said "We are looking for the general support from the public and the outline plans will be on show for them to have a look at. The meeting will then give them a chance to ask any questions or raise any concerns they might have.

"We have had tremendous support from the council and have offered their expertise".
