Since the beginning of Annan Harbour Action Group we have relied on the support of grants, donations and community support to make our projects possible. Below is a list of those who have helped us over the years.
DEVELOPING ANNAN HARBOUR 2016 - 2018
Annan Harbour Action Group has secured funding for a two-year project that will see the creation of a full time Harbour Development Officer to help take forward the groups vision to make the harbour a space for everyone to use and enjoy. There are a number of strands to the project as detailed below.

PROVISION OF SAFETY EQUIPMENT AT GROUP PREMISES
When the group took on new premises at Silverlaw Industrial Estate in Annan the Magnox Socio Economic Fund provided funding to equip the premises with fire and chemical safety equipment and storage. This allowed the group to meet legal health and safety standards and allowed volunteers and students from Annan Academy to have a safe working environment.
DREDGING THE HARBOUR CHANNEL
Core funding was provided by Axis IV of the European Fisheries Fund, through Dumfries and Galloway Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) and the South West Environmental Action Trust (SWEAT), a charity which distributes funding from the Landfill Communities Fund. We also received funding from Dumfries and Galloway Area Committee for Annandale and Eskdale, Royal Burgh of Annan Common Good Fund, Magnox and Airvolution.
Core funding was provided by FLAG and SWEAT. Funding was also received from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Annandale and Eskdale Area Committee, the Friends of Annandale and Eskdale Museums and Annan Fishermen's Association.
Annan Community Council and Solway Heritage Communities Landfill Tax Fund provided core funding. In addition, a local business donated labour and one-tonne blocks of sandstone as rock armour.
