Village Development

LESWALT HAS BEEN chosen for an ambitious £800,000 charity village development.

Behind the venture is Scottish charity Aldouran Glen Village.

They plan to develop a 14.5- acre site with 11 self-catering cabins and other facilities to enable them to provide for the people with special needs.

And they say the project would bring new income into the area, as well as providing jobs.

First phase costing around £400,000 could be ready if there are no problems towards the autumn with the remainder of the programme scheduled for completion two years later.

This week the "Free Press" was told by Gerry Brown, children's services manager with Dumfries and Galloway Council Social Services "We are looking at this development with great interest and the services in Dumfries and Galloway are working together in it".

Behind the scheme is Bernard Farrell-Roberts, managing director of Aldouran Glen Village, based at Aldouran Glen House, Leswalt. The company has been registered as a charity in Scotland.
