A remote settlement in south-west Scotland has received a Big Lottery Fund grant of £1.1million, to create a new community project.
The Upper Eskdale Development Group plan to use the money on creating a new community hub in a former Victorian School building.
Plans include a two-storey extension to the building, which wil house new offices, an art room, a shop, cafe and a bakery.
"This is great news, it's the culmination of years of hard work. If all goes according to plan then work could begin as soon as twelve weeks time."
