OUR STAR . . . the star is coming to Dumfries to encourage local discussion and reflection on Brexit as its fourth anniversary approaches

DUMFRIES will be visited by the Star of European Unity next week as it arrives on its UK tour.

Set to arrive at the Easterbrook Hall at 11 am on November 18, it will hosted by pro-European group South West Scotland for Europe.

Guests at the event will include Laura Moodie of the Scottish Green Party, author and commentator Gerry Hassan, rural economic development expert Tony Fitzpatrick, and culture sector director Ben Twist.
