Crossdykes deal pays off for communities

Local projects now vie for share of pot

Langholm is to benefit from a bumper £1 million windfall from the Crossdykes Windfarm development.

Our town is one of five who will share the pot – the others are Lockerbie, Eskdalemuir, North Milk and Middlebie/Waterbeck.
