Fort William Marina and Shoreline Community Interest Company confirmed this week work to install a retractable canopy in Fort William’s Cameron Square is complete.

In a statement issued on Monday, the community interest company told the Lochaber Times: ‘It has been a joint effort with the Fort William Town Team which has paid for the planning permission with funds received from Fort William Community Council.

‘The canopy structure was paid for with a £30,070 grant from the Town Centre Fund from The Highland Council.

‘The canopy is 7m wide and is made up of two blinds which can be extended 4m either side individually or together.

‘We sent a photograph of the canopy to Mr Fairfax-Lucy, who owns Cameron Square, together with an invitation to see it for himself and he responded.’

Mr Duncan Fairfax-Lucy told those involved: ‘I am delighted with the photograph and the way you have transformed Cameron Square into something your community can be proud of.

‘Sadly, I am now of an age where I can only get out for short distances. I do hope that
when this lockdown is a thing of the past, much good use will be made of it.’
