Hello Carol Singers and Supporters
We have fixed the carol singing in Kirkton for Sunday 16th December, meeting at the pump at 6.30pm
The Village Hall committee are again supporting us by allowing use of the hall afterwards, and they have also offered to organise refreshments
I would like to propose that the collection should be in aid of the Sam Leask Memorial Fund, which Katharine and Julian are setting up with the objective of improving the play park in Kirkton.
Please let me know if you can help in any way or have any questions, and also please tell your friends!

Laying the power cables underground should help diminish the number of power cuts this area has experienced in the past. Power lines have been affected by high winds, and every few years Scottish Power has had to get trees lopped to prevent entanglement in power lines. Over time this proves to be expensive, so although, what is happening now is a major investment, it should save the power company money in the long term.
The lads who are working here, travel from many different parts of Scotland every day....... Glasgow, Livingston, The Borders, whilst some are from the local area. They have been working in some terrible weather conditions,.....teeming rain almost every day...now sub zero temperatures...... but all have remained cheerful throughout.
Here are some photos to record this. It has been requested that Kirkmahoe News informs all the ladies that the good looking one is called David!!!

The latest improvements to Kirkton Village Hall have now been completed and the Hall is ‘open for business’. The work included the sanding and re-varnishing of the Hall floor, and the repair and repainting of all the wooden windows in the building. These improvements were funded by two awards, totaling over £8,000, received from Dumfries & Galloway Council’s Village Hall Improvement Scheme and Awards for All. The upstairs room has also been revamped making it more suitable for small meetings of up to 12 people.
And there’s plenty going on in the Hall at the moment, with a wide variety of events to suit all tastes. New members are always welcome, so just come along and see for yourself what is going on in your local community Hall.
