Two ‘senior’ Isle of Whithorn residents, Ron Bramley and Billy Brown, both long-standing volunteers in the community, have helped launch the Isle Futures’ project for the St Ninian’s Hall annexe by lifting the first turf sod.

Cheered on by a large group of villagers, and accompanied by Robert Marr of 3b construction, this was the official celebration to mark the start of a seven-month building project that will bring a new building equipped with tea room and shop, as well as a visitor reception facility, and which will augment the existing award-winning hall.

In April last year, Isle Futures secured £940,000 from the Investing in Communities Big Lottery Fund to develop St Ninian’s Hall for the benefit of the community.
