SFITA Portavogie Building Improvements

The Fishermen’s Training Facility (SFITA NI) and Mission in Portavogie, County Down was in need of a range of building upgrades and has been twice awarded funds to finance these improvements, i.e. in 2017 and again in 2018

The funds enabled the Institute to be installed with cavity wall and loft insulation, refreshed exterior paintwork, new office and training equipment  for the boardroom and training room. A new heating system was also installed through the building, which serves as a resource and training facility for the entire fishing fleet of Northern Ireland.

This project was financed by both a voluntary donation  and an Agreed Donation from the Walney Extension offshore wind farm. Photography by Scott Kershaw.
