Specsavers Stranraer is sponsoring three events at this year’s Wigtown Book Festival.

The store will be supporting the Dark Skies walk on Saturday 26 September, the Festival Fun Run on Sunday 27 September, and the Liz Lochhead, Scotland’s Makar event on Wednesday 30 September. The festival is now in its 17th year.

Pleased to be involved

Elaine Hawthorn, store director at Specsavers in Stranraer, said: ‘We are delighted to be supporting Wigtown Book Festival for another year. Eye health is important for everyone – especially when we’re talking about books and reading as they’re part of everyday life.

‘The festival really encourages people of all ages to take an interest in literature.’
