YOU may have spotted three weary-looking ladies on a journey ‘by any means’ across the region last weekend.
The three police officers undertook a gruelling 235-mile journey across the Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary force area, visiting all manned police stations as they went. Constables Carol-Anne Campbell, Jane Dunbar and Audrey Johnstone from Dumfries were raising money for two charities - The Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust and Cash For Kids.
The journey was also to celebrate and mark the last full year of Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary as a police force, before the forthcoming amalgamation into the single force which will be the Police Service of Scotland, in April 2013.
Starting at Stranraer on Friday the three wound their way across the force by rickshaw, foot, bicycle, car, Mountain Rescue Teams, Subaru Impreza cars, Inshore Rescue boat, horse and carriage, moped, and bus, finally ending up at Police Headquarters in Dumfries on Sunday in a Morris car which is similar to that used by the force when they were founded in 1948.
