Drug Service in Media Spotlight

STRANRAER’S new drug service is set to be thrust into the national media spotlight, with not one, but two high-profile names being lined up to visit.

In a double exclusive, the "Free Press" can reveal that both the Scottish Health Minister and the Deputy Justice Minister are set to make separate visits to Stranraer.

Their arrival is being planned to allow them to see first-hand how the new facility in the town’s George Street is shaping up.

Both members of the Scottish Executive will be keen to see the Stranraer Centre have a positive impact on the town’s drug problem from their respective health and criminal justice standpoints.

If all goes to plan, Health Minister Susan Deacon will arrive in the town early on Monday, 6th August. Later in the day she will visit Dumfries.

Iain Gray, the Deputy Justice Minister, is set to come to town on Thursday, 30th August. As part of his visit he will meet up with members of Stranraer’s Family Support Group who were formed recently to help those directly affected by the misery of drug abuse.
