Day of the Region update – Stranraer ARC
Please update your diaries! Stranraer ARC (Activity and Resource Centre) will now host their Day of the Region celebrations on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th September.
The ARC will launch their Day of the Region events with a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party on Friday 9th, which will be followed by a full day of free activities on Saturday 10th to include art and craft workshops in the Centre’s new dedicated art room.
The Activity and Resource Centre in Stranraer was selected to take part in the Day of the Region initiative this year as part of an exciting pilot project.
In previous years, Day of the Region events have typically been organised by communities in a given geographical area (in a town or village).
This year will be the first time the Day of the Region platform is used to celebrate a ‘community of interest’ in an area – namely the people who use Stranraer Activity and Resource Centre, their families and the wider community.
Annan, Glentrool & Bargrennan, Kirkconnel & Kelloholm, Lochmaben and Sanquhar join Stranraer ARC as Day of the Region hosts in 2016.
Now in its sixth year in Dumfries & Galloway, the annual Day of the Region celebrations provide an opportunity for community groups, organisations and individuals with an interest or skill to come together and promote what is available in their area during a concentrated weekend of FREE activities celebrating rural community life.
