PROJECTS in Lossiemouth and Buckie are set to benefit from more than £42,000 that is coming from the Scottish Government’s European Fisheries Fund programme and Moray Council.
The Covesea Lighthouse Community Company Ltd will make use of its £26,000 match funding to help develop the Covesea Skerries lighthouse, near Lossiemouth, into a heritage, education and visitor attraction.
Buckie-based Cluny Fish Ltd, meanwhile, has also been awarded £16,750 to help introduce a new seafood soup-filling line at its premises.
This follows a funding grant from the same source last year, which has helped the company install specialist equipment to allow products a longer shelf life.
According to a Moray Council spokesman, the latest award is likely to see Cluny Fish create another two full-time posts.
