Aston Hotel Dumfries proudly hosted the re-launch of Dumfries & Galloway Life magazine and would like to say a huge thank you to all those who attended and made it such a success.
Sales Manager Shonagh Wright said, “It was even better than we had hoped, the fantastic weather meant we could hold the entire event outside on the lawn. The Crichton Estate which is in full bloom made the perfect backdrop for over 80 guests who arrived in the early evening”. Guests were welcomed with iced Pimms, sparkling Elderflower cordial and presented with a “hot off the press” copy of the new look magazine.
The Dumfries Community Choir sang their hearts out as guest mingled and caught up with friends and collegues old and new. Heart-felt speeches from Alex Ferguson MP, Dame Barbour Kelly and Cathy Agnew spoke of how the magazine which is in its 7th year has transformed the way that we and our valued visitors discover and take pride in our region. Cathy Agnew declared, “this magazine is open.”
Aston Hotel Chef John Gibson from Sanqhar created a stunning selection of hot and cold canapés featuring local ingredients which were offered round and went perfectly with the evening. He said, “It’s been a pleasure to cook and prepare for such a special event, perhaps they should have a re-launch every year!”
