Refurbished Pool reopened

REFURBISHED leisure pool at the Ryan Centre, Stranraer, officially reopened on Friday.

Depute Minister for Environment, Sport and Culture Allan Wilson was earmarked to cut the ribbon.

But he cried off to attend the launch of a soccer academy at Kilmarnock Football Club.

So Beth Gordon, Deputy Convener of Dumfries and Galloway Council wielded the scissors and duly declared the place open.

The council took the opportunity to launch their Leisure and Sport Strategy for the years 2001 to 2005.

And they were congratulated by Brian Sampson, the Director of Development for sportscotland.

He said the strategy was important in three ways. It was the strongest possible statement Dumfries and Galloway could give to the Government and Government agencies like sportscotland. It was a very clear statement or what they wanted to achieve.

" I think it is terrific stuff. An absolutely ground-breaking piece of work", he said.
