The Maggie Law Maritime Museum Project is being led by Dave Ramsay, who is Project Director of The Howe O' The Mearns Heritage Association.
Of course he does get a lot of help from the Maggie Law Commitee, local organisations and special volunteers.
In November 2011 a partnership was formally launched between The Howe O' The Mearns Heritage Association and Lathallan School and a number of successful outcomes have been achieved for the benefit of the Museum and the wider community of Gourdon.

Fundraising efforts which included a coffee morning and Heritage Fair and a sponsored walk which raised £500.
This paid for
- the Council planning application for the sign
- The production and erection of the sign
- A new floor for the educational area of the museum.
In addition the funds are being used to publish a range of educational activities for school pupils who can learn lots more about the rich maritime heritage of Gourdon and the surrounding area.
