Panels to help promote Harbour heritage

A MEETING is being held to discuss how a £50,000 grant will be spent installing information panels in Scarborough’s Harbour.

Members of the Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre have organised the event, during which they hope to get the public’s views on how the Heritage Lottery funded project can be used to install some heritage information panels around the harbour.

The group was granted £50,000 for the scheme after applying for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Mark Vesey, chairman of the Maritime Heritage Centre group said: “Our maritime heritage is unique and fascinating, it is what made the town today and deserves to be celebrated and publicised to visitors and locals alike.

“We want to ensure the knowledge about our history is passed on to future generations to learn from.

“The project will be a unique, fun, learning experience for all age groups and will involve many parts of the community.”

The meeting is being held at the Enterprise Centre, in Auborough Street, opposite the Scarborough Arms Pub, tonight from 7pm.

All are welcome to see the plans and voice their views about the harbour project.
