News & Events
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!
Graham Anderson (right) presented a cheque for £1000 to Scott for Food Train Friends recently following the Dumfries Charity Choir events in 2016 when they met at another local charity event.
Dumfries members of Food Train Friends enjoyed a wonderful afternoon out in the sunshine at the Guid Nychburris Parade 2017 and were delighted to win 2nd prize in the advertising category too! Thanks as always to Gobert for driving and to our volunteers for helping out on the day and for making the bunting (Aliceann) in Food Train colours.
