What’s going on

what's on in Stranraer

We have two pages telling what’s going on. The first is “What’s on“, which is a calendar of events, telling you whats happening and what you can do. The second page is “Business News and Events“, which is a blog style page for businesses to add information and promotions about what is happening within their business. For example “Come to our quiz night tonight”, or “Dine, two for one all this month”. If you have any events that you want us to list, please email them to events@dg-local.co.uk with as much detail as you can (including a picture or leaflet) and we will list it for you. If you are a business and want to add something to our Business News and Events page, please login to your account and add one.

In both cases, we will also duplicate it on our Facebook page
