The Bowling Harbour Project and Urban Docks received funding in 2016 to get started from Firstport and West Dunbartonshire Council's Challenge Fund. Without this support we would have found it harder to get to where we are now.
West Dunbartonshire Social Enterprise Challenge is a collaboration between West Dunbartonshire Council and Scotland’s social enterprise development agency Firstport. One off awards of up to £15,000 are available, along with a full package of support and resources to enable ambitious individuals or groups to bring forward enterprising projects that can offer a long term solution to a social issue.
Applications are open! To find out more contact Brian McMillan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Applications close on 25 August

Scottish Canals and landscape architects Rankin Fraser have submitted plans for a new cycle route joining up the existing National Cycle Path via the old swing bridge at Bowling Basin. We think this is a great opportunity to make use of a great piece of engineering heritage and will provide a space for people to take in the Bowling Harbour and Basin area. We would love to see an edible garden up there! Imagine going for a stroll or cycle and being able to stop by for fresh fruit, herbs and salad.
