Open door policy for MP

The office of Dumfries and Galloway’s MP Richard Arkless, which has been fully operational for several months now, is to adopt an open door policy.

The office which is open from 10am–4pm Monday to Friday, is conveniently situated right in the heart of Dumfries town centre, just down from the Loreburne Shopping centre.

The address of the office is unit 7 High Street, Loreburne Shopping Centre, Dumfries DG1 2BD. Appointments are not necessary but can be arranged by calling 01387 265 698 or by emailing

Richard Arkless MP said: “I am always keen to hear from my constituents and want to be as approachable and accessible as possible. My door is always open so please do not worry if you haven’t made an appointment, if you are passing, if there is something you need help with then please call in.

“We have already helped many local people who have come to us with a wide range of vastly different problems. We have been successful, we are already making a difference. I would urge people to come forward and ask for the help they need.”
