Drummore and Port Logan Resilience Groups
Maureen Chand, Chairperson of the Mull of Galloway Trust recently presented hand held radios to Betty Beck and Jean Humphrey, Chairs of Drummore and Port Logan Resilience Groups. This should help these local volunteers to keep in touch with each other by radio during times of emergency in the area.
The local Resilience Groups were set up to work together to respond to emergencies such as the recent flooding caused by Hurricane Bertha which hit the area in early August and to ensure that Kirkmaiden is a safe place for its residents.
Kirkmaiden Parish is the most southern parish in Scotland and is home to a population of around 600 adults. The two villages within the parish are Port Logan and Drummore where there are a Doctor’s practice, two Women’s Rural Institutes, a bowling club, a curling club, a Community Council, an Information Centre, an RSPB centre, a lighthouse visitor centre, volunteer Coastguards, volunteer fire-fighters, a Resilience Group, Old People’s Welfare Committee, and has Rainbows and Brownies.
