A new physical activity campaign for Dumfries & Galloway has launched. The DG Doing More website is a local, one-stop shop for anyone looking to increase their physical activity levels.

Click here to see the flashmob video

The website is a useful tool for anyone looking to be more active, from inspiration on where to take the family on weekends, to enabling inactive people to find ways in which to become more active by using the physical activity tool, links to Active Communities, the physical activity directory or the what’s on page.

More information about the fun challenges, including video examples, can be found on the website at https://www.dgdoingmore.co.uk/whats-on/

The DG Doing More social media campaign will run for the next 12 months and will see more themed weeks including, active travel, doing more as a family, doing more outdoor and doing more with health conditions. Click on the image below or scan the QR code to visit the Doing More web site.

The following information has been received from Dumfries & Galloway Council about the safety of headstones in cemeteries in Dumfries & Galloway

Memorial/Headstone Safety Project

Dear Community Council,

We wanted to take this opportunity to contact all Community Councils across Dumfries and Galloway regarding the Memorial/Headstone Safety Project which has recently restarted. As work progresses, Officers will be in direct contact with Community Councils and other organisations within Communities where we are due to start an inspection of Memorials/Headstones within one of your cemeteries.

As you may be aware, Lair holders are responsible for the maintenance and repair of Lairs which includes Memorials and Headstones and Dumfries and Galloway Council as the Burial Authority, are responsible for the safety of our communities, visitors and staff within cemeteries/burial grounds.  Dumfries and Galloway Council are therefore progressing an inspection regime across all 215 cemeteries throughout the region and where required, making unstable Memorials/Headstones safe to ensure the safety of our communities.

For further information regarding this project please visit our webpage at Headstone Safety - Dumfries and Galloway Council (dumgal.gov.uk)   If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us by email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by telephone on 0303 333 3000.
