Help us shape the future of the 200 mile Solway Coast from Stranraer’s Loch Ryan to Gretna. Join us for a coastal walk and discussion.
Join Alan Thomson, development manager for the Annan Harbour Action Group, who are working to transform the harbour so that it can recover its place as a vital economic, cultural and environmental Resource for the town. We will find out more about the relationship between the harbour and its marine and coastal environment, walking out to the merse.
The walk will also be supported by Clair McFarlan, Partnership Manager for the Solway Firth Partnership. The walk will stimulate and inform discussions after lunch.
As part of the ambitious Solway Coast and Marine Project (SCAMP) we would love to explore how we as local people and businesses, could benefit from investment in ‘natural capital’.. the unique habitats, sea and landscape along the Solway.
Future Visions Playtime
After the walk it is back indoors for a hot soup and a heat up; where we will talk, dream and share ideas about future options for our coast and marine environment.
What we’ll talk about:
What a healthy coast means to you
What you want for the future
What investment in the coast could mean for work, skills and business
How we might develop the coast with an eye on its long term care
What we risk for the next generation if we don’t act now
Please join us. Have your say. Shape the future.
