A new temporary exhibition, entitled ‘Carsluith: Then and Now’ will celebrate the history and the present day of a small Galloway village.

Carsluith, a few miles south of Creetown on the shore of Wigtown Bay will be the subject of an interesting exhibition and audio-visual presentation.

One of the organisers of the event, Carsluith resident, Joan Mitchell explained: “We wanted to put together an event that not only explored some of the key historical themes of the village, but linked these with the community we see today. While some aspects of life in Carsluith have changed considerably over the years, there are other areas which, 50 or 100 years on, look very familiar.

“We hope the exhibition will be of interest to all residents of the village, whether they have recently moved to the area or have lived here all their lives. In addition, anyone with a connection with Carsluith or an interest in the area will enjoy a visit.”

The event takes place on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August from 1pm to 5pm daily in Carsluith Village Hall. Follow signs for Carsluith off the A75. Admission is free but donations to Carsluith Village Hall are welcome. Refreshments with home baking will be served over the weekend.
