Members of Dumfries and Galloway’s Federation of Tenants and Residents Associations will be out and about in the area this week.

Tenants and residents from the Federation will be visiting various locations as they tour the region to meet with local people. They have already visited many locations throughout the south-west region.

This year the members, who have representatives from across Dumfries and Galloway, have hired a people-carrier vehicle and you will be able to identify them from the logo on the side.

Dorothy Grant, secretary of the Federation, who will be on the bus said: “We want tenants and residents to come and speak to us if they have any issues in relation to their housing association, repairs, garden maintenance, rent etc – anything at all.

“We are here to represent tenants and residents across Dumfries and Galloway and this is a chance for people to come and meet us and see what we do.”
