New trawler arrives in the harbour - June 2020

P.H.T. are moving forward with new officers and trustees and are looking to the future. With a new trawler already back in the harbour  and hopefully  two more arriving this coming  winter, fishing is looking on the up. We are pleased to have cleared the top of the fish market, and will offer this space for locals to sell arts and craft products. New lighting along the fish market will be up and running  soon. And with the generous  help of some locals and ourselves a good spruce up of the harbour will be under way shortly.  With these troubling times starting to ease, we look forward to welcoming back visitors to our beautiful  village and its sparkling jewelour harbour
