Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Enterprising DG was well represented at the Annual Scottish Apprentices of the year finals at Dunblane recently.

Enterprising DG Building and Construction Service had 3 apprentices representing Dumfries and Galloway:
1st Year Trade Category Daniel McTaggart – Plumber, Dumfries
3rd Year Trade Category Liam Brawls – Plumber, Stranraer
Non Trade Category Andrew Rae – Trainee Quantity Surveyor, Dumfries

Councillor Archie Dryburgh, Enterprising Services chairman, said: Our apprentices are of a very high calibre, which can be seen by them being finalists. Building the local economy is our Council Administration’s number one priority.

Our chief executive gave a presentation on the potential of regenerating our towns and villages through partnership working with small and medium enterprises in our region.”
