Fun Outdoors have received £721 funding from the Stewartry Area Committee for their project "Fun, Outdoor, Cooperation and Equality". This project will get children outdoors regularly to learn about cooperation, equality, children's rights, and peace. The overall aims are to improve children's outdoor skills, interpersonal skills, confidence and connection to the natural world, in order to provide the best start in life for all our children.
There is currently a petition in Spar and the Gatehouse Store regarding the state of the former Woodside Garage site. Gatehouse residents are still concerned about the poor state of the site and have asked local MP Richard Arkless to support a formal approach to Dumfries and Galloway Council to negotiate with the site owner to achieve improvements at this prominent site. If you feel that you wish to lend your support, please sign the petition as soon as possible.
