I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my celebration lunch and seeing all those that were at the Friday session, the meals were really good.  Jane and her team did a fine job.

We are having some good weather at moment, sadly, friend and fellow member Moira Mcmillan has had a bad fall near her house and had to attend hospital, she has a broken wrist and possibly her nose too,  numerous grazing and bruises, she’s not a pretty sight bless her, we all wish her a speedy recovery and a get well card from u3a. 

I do have some good news of sorts,  I went down this morning to see the opening of our new information centre in the refurbished old Harbour Master’s office and it’s very nice inside.  Border news cameras doing their stuff,and buffet laid out to help your self, it’s even got a name Gateway to Galloway.   Sorry to say they are not doing bus or train tickets as yet !! But, will give info on how to get one, not much change there 10 – 2 pm sat,10- 4pm Monday to Friday.

There is some nice photos and art work from local people but I know some of you are just as good if not better maybe we should have an exhibition sometime and fly your own flags. 

Another committee meeting will be held at the end of the month, so I will keep you all posted on what ever further developments arise concerning us all, have a enjoyable July and be in touch soon. 

Take care how you go,
