SNAKES ALIVE

The Galloway News - - School News -

Snakes have been pop­ping up across the Ste­wartry in re­cent weeks.

Peo­ple of all ages have been en­cour­aged to paint stones with what­ever they like and add them to“snakes”in towns across the re­gion in a bid to lift spir­its and bring com­mu­ni­ties to­gether dur­ing lock­down.

Springholm, Kirkcud­bright, Cas­tle Dou­glas and Haugh of Urr are among the places tak­ing part, with some of the cre­ations now more than 1,000 stones in length.

Here is a se­lec­tion of some of the won­der­ful stones that have been made in Kirkcud­bright, the re­gion’s Artists’Town.

It seems the Wee Kirkcud­bright Cen­tipede may have some com­pe­ti­tion!
