This is your chance to get involved in your community or to explore a neighbouring town or village!
Day of the Region events will no longer go ahead as planned in Canonbie this year.
The ARC will launch their Day of the Region events with a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party on Friday 9th, which will be followed by a full day of free activities on Saturday 10th to include art and craft workshops in the Centre’s new dedicated art room.
The Activity and Resource Centre in Stranraer was selected to take part in the Day of the Region initiative this year as part of an exciting pilot project.
Annan, Glentrool, Kirkconnel & Kelloholm, Lochmaben and Sanquhar will all open their doors and invite everyone to come along and be part of it!
From cooking demonstrations, arts and crafts, sports and fitness to pony rides, emergency service displays, football, music and BBQ’s local working groups are ensuring there will be something for everyone.
If you are involved in a community group, local organisation, business have an interest or hobby that you would like to promote then please get in touch as soon as possible.
Annan, Glentrool & Bargrennan, Kirkconnel & Kelloholm, Lochmaben and Sanquhar join Stranraer ARC as Day of the Region hosts in 2016.
Now in its sixth year in Dumfries & Galloway, the annual Day of the Region celebrations provide an opportunity for community groups, organisations and individuals with an interest or skill to come together and promote what is available in their area during a concentrated weekend of FREE activities celebrating rural community life.
