Hall funds boost

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Cas­tle Dou­glas ma­sons have chipped in to help lo­cal groups re­cover from a dif­fi­cult year.

Storm Ophe­lia blew the roof off the FG Deans Me­mo­rial Hall last Oc­to­ber – leav­ing the Beavers, Cubs, Brown­ies and Guides ef­fec­tively home­less.

Al­ter­na­tive venues had to be found for weekly gather­ings with the cost of hir­ing var­i­ous halls paid for out of each group’s in­di­vid­ual funds.

The fi­nan­cial bur­den was light­ened when Lodge St John 189 re­cently do­nated £500.

FG Deans Me­mo­rial Hall com­mit­tee chair­per­son Amanda Kirk­patrick was “very grate­ful” for the fi­nan­cial sup­port.

Help­ing hand Mark John­stone of Lodge St John 189 pre­sents the cheque to Amanda Kirk­patrick
