Walk Leader Opportunity

Walking groups and the support they offer

Walk leader training this spring

With so many more people walking over the past year we are delighted to offer a range of walk leader training this spring.

During periods of lockdown, those who had been relatively mobile may not feel as confident on their feet. Walking groups, and the support they offer, could be a vital lifeline in our communities.

Could you help deliver a regular walking group in your community?

Hello All, 

I had my Covid jab this morning, and I expect many of you have already had yours.  Let's hope that it is the start to being able to get together as a community before too long.

The Community Council and Discover Kirkmahoe have bought some litter grabbers which are available for anyone to use to help collect the vast amount which gets deposited on our verges.  There is one in each phone box, Kirkton and Dalswinton and the others are being looked after by members of the community who will use them and keep them safe for others to use too.  A list of their locations is attached.

Another issue is that there is a group of young people, mainly lads of about 13 who are riding their bikes dangerously on the roads near Kirkton and also visiting Carnsalloch House which is a dangerous place.  If you encounter them, please contact the Community police officers. The details are

And finally, We are considering producing a printed copy of Grapevine in the Spring.  If you are able to contribute, especially on behalf of a community organisation, please let me know.  I don't need the article yet, just to know that they will be forthcoming.

Keep safe, keep warm and keep looking out for each other!

Best wishes,
