In view of the COVID-related upheavals, we’re taking stock of Fraserburgh 2021’s progress – and it’s cheering news. We’ve managed to keep forging ahead with our grant funded projects despite all that 2020 has thrown at us.

Two Projects – the Penny Schoolie and ‘Close to Home’ shopfront, at opposite ends of the High street, have been completed since lockdown.

Close to Home has benefited from a grant towards handsome new windows – now thats an improvement.

Three Projects are currently on-site: 5-13 Mid Street, Former John Trail Bookshop, led by the North East of Scotland Preservation Trust; Four Shopfronts in Commerce Street (between 21 and 31) and 22-30 High Street.

S&J’s Shopfront in High Street midway through its revamp, thanks to our Small Grants Scheme.

On top of those projects, three more will be going on site in the next couple of weeks: 1-7 Frithside Street, the Saltoun Mausoleum and Anderson House. All good.

Next to benefit from a  Fraserburgh 2021 Grant – Shopfronts and Flats at 1-7 Frithside Street.
