Moves for Local People to Take Over Harbour

FIRST STEP in moves for local people to take over popular Portpatrick Harbour will be made next week.

And with an invite to villagers to set the ball rolling comes a warning that without a clean working harbour, the village could die.

Future development of the harbour has been thrown into doubt with the rejection of plans by South of England-based Leisure Harbours Ltd to re-develop it as a marina.

Now a group of local people have called a public meeting for Monday night in the village hall.

And the only item on the agenda is whether or not moves should be made to try to buy it.

A steering group consisting of local councillor Grahame Forster, life-boat coxswain Robert Erskine and others in the village, Ian Cerexhe, Robert Campbell, Bryn Watson, a former harbourmaster, Mark Panter and Andy Begg are behind the project.
