Stranraer is…’, available at, is part of the ‘Support Stranraer’ campaign.

It aims to support Covid-recovery by encouraging people to feel good about enjoying local facilities and buying from local businesses.

Trust chariman Romano Petrucci said: “This past year has had an absolutely devastating impact on Stranraer. One thing it has shown is the importance of community and just how lucky we are to live in this beautiful part of the world.

“As Scotland unlocks we wanted to celebrate our wee toon and everyone in it. Stranraer is all of us. It’s our people, our schools and college, our businesses, our community groups, our ambition, the warmth of our welcome and our very beautiful place.

“We wanted to capture that feeling of togetherness in this film. Brighter days are ahead and the community of Stranraer will embrace those brighter days with confidence and determination. Stranraer is special and we want to shout about it.”

Support Stranraer is funded by the ‘Towns and Business Improvement Districts Resilience and Recovery Fund’, and the Stranraer recovery campaign has the backing of Dumfries & Galloway Council.
