Here are a couple of our newest Upper Nithsdale based members (left pic) enjoying shopping in the rain in Ayr in a typical Scottish Summer in late June...but they loved having the opportunity to go out with others and to shop safely with transport provided. Also on the trip were Jean and Agnes (right pic) from Sanquhar pictured with our volunteer Catherine coming out of a shop smiling, despite the rain! Call us for more info on 01387 279111

We had fun filming this week with our partners from Carnegie Trust UK following the 'Friendly Dumfries' test of theory that there is kindness in our Dumfries community prior to their final report being published soon. Thanks to all who attended and spoke on camera - there were a few nervous people in the room, but they were all stars!
Our Stranraer 'Friends' members enjoyed a super trip to Logan Botanic Gardens this month and enjoyed a lovely lunch in The Potting Shed cafe. We then had a short trip to the village of Port Logan, scene of BBC TV's '2000 Acres of Sky' just a few years ago. A great day was had by all with a sing-a-long on the bus...and the weather was just right too!
