F.A.O. Machars Action Members

23rd May 2024

Dear members,

Further to recent speculation, I would like to clarify the following with regards to Machars Action;

Due to a continued period of unsuccessful funding applications which has created an ongoing cash crisis, the Board of Directors of Machars Action have made the difficult decision to sell the Machars Action building, 26 Main Street,

Wigtown, Newton Stewart, DG8 9EH. It will be placed on the market at the end of May 2024, and interested parties are

advised to contact Machars Action for more information.

Additionally, Carol Lochrie the office manager and Margaret Mcpherson the office administrator, have been issued with redundancy notices. The office will remain open until Monday 1st July 2024 when all remaining tenants and staff will vacate the building.

A final decision regarding the future of Machars Action will be made in the coming weeks, as the Board of Directors decide the best way forward for this community based charity.

Yours sincerely,

Nicole Court

Chairperson Machars Action
