This week’s theme, if there is one, seems to be the great outdoors.
We explore responsible camping, seek otters in the Galloway Forest Park, get a stunning view from the summit of Criffel, and celebrate the success of the Kirkcudbright Summer Activities group.
It may be a while before our lives return to ‘normal’, but some things are coming back. Happily, our schools and nurseries are back in action, with children and young people reunited with friends and learning again in the classroom and our libraries, museums and galleries are reopening.
We’re proud of the way that our Council has delivered school meals to those most in need over the summer and our participation in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme is another example of us continuing to deliver for parents, carers and young people.
We’re also proud of our local people, such as the volunteers at Kirkcudbright Summer Activities. Congratulations to them on receiving the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a volunteer group can get in the UK. They’ve made an outstanding contribution to their community over the last 48 years. Well done and thank you to them.
