The project team is itself adding information in an effort to document more than was done in the past - see the right-most menu option - Resources -for a growing number of items.
Other schools are completing topics and also contributing to a list of Scots words, many with a seafaring relevance.
Fullarton Youth Group are preparing a video on James Montgomery.
Volunteers are now needed. Please consider volunteering to:
The Heritage Lottery Award is the stepping stone to research and celebration of the people and the industries of what was once a major port. Enjoy the items on this site. You can be part of helping the harbourside to gain recognition and you can help to bring it alive again, this time as a cultural tourist destination.
The first-ever Dragon Boat Racing in the harbour attracted
participants and spectators alike, in August 2013, and was repeated
in 2014 and in 2015, again at the Fourth Port Festival during
Marymass. You can view the videos on our Dragon Boat pages.
Unfortunately, team numbers + a need for new organisers led to no Challenge in 2016.
The positive: over 3 years,
about 500 different people raised approx. £25,000
It's not a heritage item - ! - but without doubt one that drew attention to what the harbour has to offer.
