Gatehouse receives biosphere recognition

New signs have been erected at the entrances to Gatehouse declaring that we are a Biosphere community.

Gatehouse of Fleet is a proud supporter of the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere.  A Biosphere is a special designation awarded by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to areas renowned for their special environments which are valued by local people.  


Biosphere is an international designation providing a badge associated with special places, the best environments and high quality local products.  Signage is really important for spreading the word about the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere.  The people of Gatehouse are proud of their local environment and these new signs will help attract people to our community.

Further inormation on the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere is available on their website:
