What would a park bench say?
What would the cannon in Dock Park say?

The #Nithraid sets sail on Social Media

We’ve been busy gathering words for The Nithraid this week. When the boats arrive in the town on Saturday 21 September, they will be greeted by The Stove’s huge fabric banners floating downstream from the Old Bridge, welcoming them to Dumfries with messages from the townspeople.

The #Nithraid discussions on Twitter and Facebook have arrived at ‘Three words for Dumfries’ – as broad and as limited as it sounds. We’ve had some really interesting contributions.

Here’s a summary of The #Nithraid tweets and posts:

We’ll continue the discussion on Facebook and Twitter this week. Come along and join in!
