During this challenging time due to Coronavirus Covid-19, we are maintaining a list of useful local shops and services.

Many of our small, local businesses have adapted to support us during this time. This often results in reduced hours.

If you are aware of any errors, or would like to add additional detail please email us.

Keep in touch -- you are not alone

If you need any assistance from the Kippford Support Group, we have a team of local Volunteers ready to assist with shopping, medication collection, dog walking, a friendly phone call...

Keep in touch with us via support@kippfordvillage.org, by calling 03300 01 07 01, or other ways via our Contact Page.  More details about our    Village Support here
