Pot Holes

8 Feb 2019
The following potholes have been reported to the Council:
  • Near the entrance to Merse Way
  • As you come into the village at the Kippford sign
  • Near the entrance to the Caravan Park
  • Just past the Mariner pub

Burst Sewage Pipe

There is a burst sewage pipe on the way in to the village, opposite the old telephone exchange. This has been reported to both Scottish Water (SW) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). SW are attending as a matter of extreme urgency but the repair will involve Scottish Power because the burst is adjacent to an electricity pole.

A generator and pump have been installed by Scottish Water to bypass the burst pipe. This may be in place for several weeks until Scottish Power arrange to isolate the power lines above the damaged pipe.

MAKING ANNUAL KIPPFORD ASSOCIATION CONTRIBUTIONS

Did you know that you can make annual contributions to your Kippford Association through a Standing Order from your bank? If you are getting forgetful, like me, this is an easy way to help pay for the upkeep of the Village Hall and it's surrounding area (including the car park) bus shelter and the Wee Pier. Whilst your Committee's funds are healthy, there are future improvements that will require to be carried out.

Anyone wishing to pay through Standing Order can request their bank to pay an annual sum to:


The Kippford Association

Account number: 00162955

Don't forget to add your name! 

You can use the same details if you wish to make a one off payment via your online banking.
