Goodbye Cream o’ Galloway!

Out on the Cream o’ Galloway Nature Trail

Today is the last day of opening for the Cream o’ Galloway visitor centre. The ice-cream making business has been sold to a new operator so hopefully we will be able to continue to enjoy their excellent ice creams. The Ethical Dairy will continue to make artisan cheeses which will be available in local outlets. The Ethical Dairy farm tours will continue and the nature trails will remain open to visitors.

A big thank you to Wilma and David Finlay who have grown the business over the last 30 years, pioneering the development of organing and regenerative farming practices.

Borgue Litter Pickers

The roads around Borgue are now looking a lot cleaner since the inaugural outing of the Borgue Litter Pickers on 14th April. 15 people turned out for the session and made good use of the hi-vis vests, pickers, gloves and bags provided by Dumfries & Galloway Council.

21 bags of rubbish were collected and hauled back to Borgue for collection by the council. There will be other opportunities for getting involved so keep an eye on the Borgue Commnnity Facebook page for more information.

E-Bike Event at Cream o’ Galloway on 20th November
