New trawler arrives in the harbour
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.

With these troubling times starting to ease , we look forward to welcoming back visitors to our beautiful village and its sparkling jewel ..our harbour
