Jo has praised this week’s Kirkintilloch Canal Festival, running from the 22nd – 28th August:
“In Kirkintilloch’s 800th year as a burgh, the Canal Festival is a more exciting occasion than ever, and serves as a great celebration of Kirkintilloch’s cultural and historic significance. For years the Canal Festival has brought together people of all ages came together to enjoy a wide range of events and activities, and the organisers have done a brilliant job of putting together a packed programme that this year extends the festivities to a whole week.
“I hope as many local people as possible will get involved and enjoy the Canal Festival, from guided walks and lectures on the canal’s history, to the colourful gala at the end of a great week.”
