A snapshot of the community spirit- penned over the weekend

A facebook page set up by local residents from in and around Galloway has been praised for providing an extremely helpful service throughout the snow storm.

The page has attracted almost 2,000 'likes' and has enabled locals to share information on the latest weather situation where they are.

A poem titled 'The Big Sna' has been written to sum up the community spirit shown in the area.

We have shown a few verses below, but visit the 'Galloway Sno Aid Helping Page' on facebook for the full version.
