Dumfries and Galloway LEADER Team are delighted to announce the launch of ‘Day of the Region 2016’ which will see free events and activities delivered across five communities throughout September 2016!
Now in its sixth year, Day of the Region is an opportunity for community groups, organisations and individuals with an interest or skill to come together and promote what is available right on our own doorsteps; to attract new members and encourage more people to get involved, feel better connected and more aware of the variety of activity that takes place in our communities!
Local volunteer working groups are busy planning the special celebration events that will see over 150 FREE events and activities delivered for all ages, abilities and interests.
Annan, Glentrool, Kirkconnel & Kelloholm, Lochmaben and Sanquhar will all open their doors and invite everyone to come along and be part of it!
From cooking demonstrations, arts and crafts, sports and fitness to pony rides, emergency service displays, football, music and BBQ’s local working groups are ensuring there will be something for everyone.
If you are involved in a community group, local organisation, business have an interest or hobby that you would like to promote then please get in touch as soon as possible.
Specific dates are yet to be confirmed but these events will be taking place on the weekends during September. Our website is in the process of being updated and will be the best source for the most up-to-date information about Day of the Region 2016 and beyond!
