About Us

The People's Project was set up in 2008 by Mark Jardine who wanted to rekindle the meaning of community in Dumfries and Galloway. 
A few of our main achievements are:

1) Dumfries was awarded "Top Large Town" in 2011/2018 and 2019 by Beautiful Scotland. 
2)With support from the People's Project, New Abbey was awarded "Top Small Village 2012" by Beautiful Scotland.
3) The Peter Pan statue was unveiled in 2011 to promote the fact that Dumfries is the birthplace of Peter Pan and replaced in 2019
4) 120 High School pupils re-built an 80 metre section of dry-stane dyke on the Lockerbie Road
5) We designed a "MUST DO" guide for Dumfries and Galloway, and a Dining Guide for Dumfriers.

 6) We have transformed a 100 metre section of wall at Palmerston Park with art work. 

 7) We erected a statue of Robert the Bruce at Castledykes Park in 2019, highlighting the towns important connection to the Scottish King. 

 8) We have tirelessly worked with the local Council on litter matters, and we have made numerous donations locally, most notably to: The Theatre Royal; The Usual Place; and local Foodbanks.
 9) We planted an orchard of 150 trees at Lincluden Abbey.
10) We transformed Market Square in Dumfries and provided historic notice boards.
 This is a flavour of some of the things that the People's Project has achieved in the last eleven years. We don't just talk about it, - WE DO IT!    


 There is a well known saying:

"Nobody can do everything, - but everyone can do something"

The People's Project recognises this fact and asks you to embrace that philosophy in an effort to improve the quality of life for every person living in the region.
