Dumfries & Galloway Council Community Bulletin

Every Tuesday and Friday Dumfries & Galloway Council publish a Community Bulletin which provides an update on COVID-19 related matters.

The bulletin includes articles on community resilience, community initiatives, community spirit and volunteering activities being undertaken by citizens and communities.  We also shine a ‘spotlight’ on frontline services, including articles and profiles on individual emergency responders and key workers.

A hard copy of the bulletin is delivered with free school meals and food bags for our most vulnerable citizens shielding from COVID-19. Hard copies are also available at participating supermarkets.
