Your Community Initiative office

The Initiative main office is now located at 16 High Street (previously insurance office). At these premises our information point shop is at the front and the main office is at the back. We envisage combining our services will create a central point of contact for local, community, visitor, and project information. This also means the Ebikes and Rocks and Wheels project have a dedicated office space at our former premises at 71 High Street.
To contact the main office our new telephone number is now 01556 612752, address 16 High Street, Dalbeattie DG5 4AA, email is the same: info71.dci@gmail.com.
