Flooding Roads closed

Due to the severe storms there is a lot of flooding in this area. Roads are closed. If you want to get into Dumfries - suggest you use the back road to Locharbriggs which is usually OK.

Here is the link to the Tide Table where you can check when flooding is likely to be at its worst due to the incoming tide.

Here is the link to  SEPA Flood alert where you can check areas where flooding is likely and can also find out what to do in the event of flooding in your area.There is much useful information on this site.

Carol Singing Sunday 22nd Dec. Meet at pump Kirkton

Hello Everyone
This is just a reminder that there will be carol singing in Kirkton on Sunday 22nd December - meeting at 6.30pm at the pump. We go around the whole village which takes about 2 hours and then retire to Kirkton Hall to get warm and have some refreshment which is kindly supplied by members of the Hall committee and other generous folk.
The collection this year will be for a cancer charity in memory of Fiona Meikle Latta.
I hope some of you will be able to come and join us.

Please contact me if you wish to know more. 01387 710216
