The Scottish Government have published an update on the rollout of fibre broadband throughout the country. You can read it at: http://borguecommunity.org.uk/index.php/our-work/broadband-campaign/fibre-broadband-r100-update. Kirkandrews village is exploring the option of using the UK Government Rural Gigabit Voucher scheme to pay for extending the fibre network to the Kirkandrews area. Under the scheme, properties can claim vouchers of up to £1,500 each to cover the cost of installing the fibre cabling.

The Borgue bus timetable will be changing (slightly) from the start of December with the aim of improving links to onward connections.

There is currently a temporary arrangement whereby the 0810 and 1540 service are being done by the big school bus (driven by Colin).

The Galloway Community Transport (GCT) bus is now doing a to and from school, schools-only service round by Girthon, Rainton, Borgue etc. This service isn't licensed to carry the public.

GCT is still operating the 1210 and 1710 Kirkcudbright-Brighouse-Borgue-Kirkcudbright services as usual until the new timetable starts on 2 December.

The best person to contact with any questions about the service is Lindsay Heron at Swestrans: 01387 260383.
