Galloway was well represented at the annual Scottish Apprentice of the year finals at Dunblane recently.
Enterprising DG Building and Construction Service had three 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.
“Building the local economy is our council administration’s number one priority. The conference received a presentation giving an overview of what potential commercialisation can look like from a local authority perspective. 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.”
