Pier Group Gets Charitable Status

The Pier Group has just been informed officially by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator that our application to achieve charitable status has  been successful.  Our official title now is “Collieston Harbour Heritage Group” and we have a charity number.  The official title and charity number will be used in any correspondence we have regarding grant applications etc, but for local working purposes we will still be the “Pier Group.”  Our thanks are very much due to Sally for the work she has put in so willingly to achieve this objective.   The fact that we are now a recognised charity is likely to have significant benefits in our on-going efforts to protect the pier and the beach.

Yacht for Sale!

For Sale 21 foot twin keeled sailing yacht, currently lying in Collieston Harbour.  Complete with 5hp outboard motor (currently in storage for safe keeping.)  Vessel to be sold as seen but is believed to be in reasonable order.  Offers invited around £1,500.  If interested please contact Dave Stewart on 01358 751377 or Sally Sheehan on 01358 751244.

PIER DINNER HITS THE JACKPOT!

A big thank you to everyone who contributed in so many different ways to the success of the Pier fund-raising dinner at the Marcliffe last Wednesday.   Special thanks to Stewart Spence and his family who have been incredibly generous.   The evening generated a profit of just over £27,000, which provides a huge boost for our continuing efforts to secure the pier’s long term future.
