Community Fund award of £25,000

EVENTS in Stranraer, Portpatrick and Cairnryan have been given a boost with a Community Fund award of £25,000 to the local events programme.

Glen Murray, events manager, said,

"I am absolutely delighted with this news.

I can now confirm, acts, artists and book venues well ahead of schedule allowing us to book the best possible people for next year’s events".

Events play an increasingly important part in the local tourism infrastructure, so their success is essential to aid the local area’s economic regeneration.

Importance of events has been recognised in the newly published Dumfries and Galloway Tourist Board Area Strategy, and as part of the co-ordination of events, a group from the Council, Enterprise Company and Tourist Board has been established to develop an "Events Strategy" for Dumfries and Galloway.
