Newton Stewart Initiative, Working for you, in green and red text.



Douglas Park

The benches have arrived! We are pleased to announce that the much asked for benches and picnic benches have arrived and been installed at Douglas Park! Many thanks to Solway Recycling Ltd for providing and storing the benches for us, Any Slavin and Fam for putting in the concrete bases and to Dumfries and Galloway Council for fitting the benches to the bases. These benches were possible due to a grant from the Hugh Fraser Foundation.

We recently received some funding from the Holywood Trust for the Changing Places toilet to be installed at Douglas Park. We are currently £5k off our target!

We have also applied for funding for an additional picnic bench and
Inclusive exercise equipment, which we hope will be successful.

Development of Community Facility

We have submitted our final draft and Stage 2 application to D&G Council for the Penninghame Centre and the Minnigaff Industrial Units, which has been a big piece of work for staff and Trustees to do.

Taking Notice

Did you know we have two community notice boards where local groups can advertise their services to the local community? You can speak to Laura at her shop or drop a poster off at the Newton Stewart Initiative Centre and we will pop them in for you
