Funding awarded for STI

STRANRAER, Cairnryan and Portpatrick are set for a boost with the news that funding amounting to 375,000 has been awarded to the Small Towns Initiative (STi).

And now the STi which was set-up to promote the three small towns will double its staff from two to four. In addition to the existing manager and events officer, the STi will be advertising the positions of senior financial and administrative support worker and project officer based at Portpatrick.

The total grant that the STi has received is made up of two separate awards. The first is 250,000 from the Dumfries and Galloway board of Scottish Enterprise.

This money will be used to fund projects in the four main operational areas of the STi, namely, business development, economic inclusion, environmental enhancement and marketing and events.

The second grant is an award of 125,000 from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

This money awarded to the STi is part of a larger sum coming to the South of Scotland as a whole.
