to Kirkcowan’s community website
Starting originally as a printed newsletter, this website is being developed to provide up to date information & news about present-day Kirkcowan, a rural village in Dumfries & Galloway, southwest Scotland.
We aim to cover news, events & activities, clubs & groups, organisations & businesses, and anything else that might be useful or interesting to residents and visitors alike.
Run on a voluntary basis, we hope that this website will help people find & share current information quickly and easily, but please bear with us as we iron out any glitches.
The accuracy, quantity and relevance of information will depend on input from group organisers and the wider community.
We’ve reactivated the mailing list (MailChimp) which you can join and we’ll be mailing out updated information e.g. Community Council Minutes etc. as a trial to see if it’s generally well received. (The Signup form is in the RH column under the ‘Search’ box).
We took it offline for a while after it was blitzed by bots and spammers. However, MailChimp have updated their spam filters and as there is a short list of, what appear to be, bona fide signups we thought it might be a worthwhile exercise to send out updated information and, hopefully, increase community engagement.
So – If you see something on the site and would like it to be included in the mailing list than let us know. (Trust Correspondence etc.)
Comments, suggestions and contributions welcome.
