Calendar showcases stunning region

SOME of the most scenic spots in the region feature in a new fundraising calendar.

Dumfries businesswoman, and keen photographer, Ruth Jardine has selected her favourite images from around the area for the ninth Beautiful Dumfries and Galloway Calendar 2020 in aid of The People’s Project.

The pictures showcase the variety of landscapes locally, from woodland and meadow, to coast and hill.

And she hopes as well as highlighting how lovely Dumfries and Galloway is, it will also raise awareness of The People’s Project, which was founded by her husband Mark in 2008 and aims to make Dumfries and Galloway the Queen of the South through community involvement.

She said: “To fund initiatives like our Dumfries Dining Directory and Must Do and See in D&G Guides, as well as carrying out regular litter picks and beach cleans, we rely entirely on funds raised from our photographic calendar Beautiful Dumfries and Galloway, which is created by me and showcases landscape images from across the region.”

The calendar is now on sale at locations including The Usual Place, Gardenwise, JB Houstons, Kilnford Barns, The Midsteeple, Molly May’s Tea Room, Barbours, Mrs. Howat’s Vintage Tea Room, Jardine Funeral Directors, Loch Arthur Farm Shop, The Mariner Hotel and The Ark at Kippford, Colvend Shop, The Steamboat Inn at Carsethorn and New Abbey Shop and New Abbey Tea Room.

Ruth expressed thanks to sponsors J.B Houston, Monaghans, Ricksons Carpets, Gardenwise, Peak Physique, Mrs. Howats Vintage Pantry, T. McKie Ltd, Loreburne Shopping Centre, Hardie Engineering, The Caledonian Hotel, Ryedale Remedials, Dumfries & Galloway Life Magazine and Roucan Loch Crematorium & Woodland Burial Site.
