After what has felt like an interminable period since late January, we’re now easing our way out of lockdown.
The next meeting of Kirkcowan Community Council will take place at 7pm on Monday 19th April 2021. Online. All welcome
Kirkcowan Community Council Meeting – 15th March 2021
at 7pm, online via Zoom, due to continuing Covid19 restrictions
From today, Covid restrictions will be eased enabling us to leave our local authority areas and travel anywhere in mainland Scotland
Across Scotland, the number of deaths from Covid-19 has fallen sharply; down by over 80% in the last 2 months. The number of people in hospital and intensive care is also reducing.
Declining numbers of new Covid cases in our region and great progress in the rollout of vaccinations mean that we have cause for optimism.
We are making progress in the fight against Covid-19. More than 60% of our region’s adult population has now received the first Covid-19 vaccination, and around 10% the second.
UPDATE 17th April 2021:
A Casual Vacancy Election will now not be required as only 5 candidates were validly nominated by 30th March, to fill 6 vacancies.
This Tuesday (23 March) marks the first anniversary of the nationwide lockdown. It has been designated a national day for reflection and it gives us all a chance to look back on those we have lost, the many sacrifices we had to make, and the hardships that many of us have had to endure.
An Election is to be held for 7 members to serve in the Scottish Parliament for the South Scotland Region.
