#Village News


On the evening on the 15th March 2019, the Village Hall hosted a fundraiser for the Dumfries Branch of Parkinson's UK.


We're delighted to report that the new hall curtains have been hung, and are looking great.

Paper News Letters

09 Feb 2019


One of our aims for 2019 and beyond is to have better communication with Villagers.  We recognise that not everyone is on email, and also that some prefer a physical read, so we have been considering the relaunch of a paper newsletter.

February Pot Holes

08 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

On Monday 11th February at 7pm we are holding a brief update meeting regarding The Kipp.  We would be pleased to explain our funding applications, and our plans to plant 4,600 trees in the coming few weeks.

Burst Sewage Pipe

21 Jan 2019

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.

Congratulations to the Solway Yacht Club in Kippford -- they won the Royal Yachting Association Club of the Year.  They were recognised for their commitment to developing their cadet programme, their innovative engagement with the local school, their growing membership and active approach to skilling their committee.
