Stranraer Oyster Festival 2019 chosen as the 2020 winner of the CIS Excellence Awards

Stranraer Development Trust have the pleasure in announcing that the Stranraer Oyster Festival 2019 was chosen as the 2020 winner of the CIS Excellence Awards, in the Food Tourism Award category.

The Stranraer Oyster Festival has grown to become an amazing success and is now recognised at national level by Visit Scotland. This is down to the many volunteers who have offered their time and skills, as well as all the support given by the community.

“This award is for every person who attended, supported and volunteered at our fantastic festival in 2019. No one could have imagined what would transpire in the world since that weekend but when this is all over one thing for sure is that SDT will be ready and eager to go again and create a festival that will be once again the pride of the entire region. This is the third highly prestigious award the Trust has been put forward for and on each occasion SOF has come out as the winner every time. Thank you to everyone for your continued support- for now stay safe and close to your loved ones and we will go again in 2022.” Romano Petrucci - Chairman SDT.
