Dumfries and Galloway Council Signs Up to Earth Hour 2018

Dumfries and Galloway Council is once again proud to demonstrate their commitment to action on climate change, by joining WWF Scotland for the planet’s biggest environmental event.
We will join the global lights out event for Earth Hour by turning off our lights at the council HQ in English Street Dumfries for the weekend of 24th/25th March, and at Dumfries Museum and Camera Obscura on Saturday 24th March for one hour at 8.30pm to celebrate WWF’s Earth Hour.

Events will take place to mark this occasion, including Stargazing at Dumfries Museum, and we’ll let you know more next week and through our Council’s Facebook page, but this weekend, why not attend the Dumfries and Galloway Environment Fair, a free day out with activities for all the family, is on Saturday 10th March, 10am–3.30pm at the Rutherford McCowan building, Crichton Campus, Dumfries. The event is led by Outdoor and Woodland Learning Group D&G. More information is available at: www.facebook.com/EnvironmentFair

Cllr Archie Dryburgh, Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Economy, Environment and Infrastructure Committee said: “We’re proud to once again be taking part in WWF’s Earth Hour. It’s great to be able to show that by us all working together we can make a difference and help protect our planet and the Environment Fair is a great opportunity to see how you can make a difference to the world and possibly same yourself some money too.
