Kirkcudbright Harbour Master gains International Diploma

Kirkcudbright Harbour Master, Peter Roberts, received a certificate on 19th February from Councillor Patsy Gilroy, Chair of DGFirst Management Committee.

Councillor Gilroy announced that Peter has been the Harbour Master at Kirkcudbright for 12 years and during his time has made some significant improvements that have contributed to the efficient operation of this facility, the fifth busiest harbour in Scotland.

“Peter has gained the International Diploma for Harbour Masters, recognised by the industry as a significant qualification for those engaged in harbour management. Gaining this qualification bears testimony to Peter’s hard work; the knowledge he has gained will be of great use, both to him and the service as we continue to develop the operational and legislative aspects of managing our harbours across Dumfries and Galloway.”

Gilroy also added, “We are very fortunate in our authority to have someone with such a qualification.  I know Kirkcudbright really appreciates all the work Peter does to manage its harbour efficiently.”
