New Cycling Event in Gatehouse

The Gralloch - a new top level international gravel racing event comes to Gatehouse

Organisers, RED:ON are proud to launch The Gralloch, the UK’s first top level international gravel cycling race which will be held on Saturday May 20th 2023. The Gralloch will be the first UK event to be part of the TREK UCI Gravel World Series, the Union Cycliste Internationale’s highest level of gravel racing. This status means the race is the only event in the United Kingdom where cyclists can qualify for the Gravel World Championships, to be held in Italy next October.

Gatehouse Red Squirrels need you help

Gatehouse red Squirrels has launched a campaign to raise funds to allow the group to continue its work in protecting the red squirrel population in the Gatehouse Area. 

European project gets under way

Gatehouse Development Initiative has teamed up with five other groups from across Europe to develop a project designed to bring together older people, younger people and the wider community to share knowledge and help protect the local environment. The project will see older members of the community passing on traditional skills to young people and the community undertaking landscape management projects.

As Local Authorities withdraw from providing services across Europe, volunteer groups must step in, if key features of the local landscape such as core paths or, here at Gatehouse, the town hall garden, for example, are to be maintained.
