Dumfriesshire MP David Mundell attended a meeting hosted by the Scottish Government in Langholm designed to agree a plan to take forward The Muckle Toon forward.
Hosted by Paul Wheelhouse MSP, the summit was a follow up to the summit hosted by David in the town before Christmas and round the table were fellow local representatives, business people and local organisations.
Commenting on the visit, David said: "This was a useful follow up to the jobs summit I hosted in Langholm before Christmas and it confirmed that the community will be key to driving forward initiatives for Langholm.
"That has always been a massive strength for the Muckle Toon and the surrounding communities that they have so many people who care about improving their area and it is imperative that those in different community groups and organisations come together under one banner.
"I will do everything I can to support those efforts going forward in Langholm and beyond.
"I was pleased to see the Scottish Government offer their commitment to support the area but ultimately they will be judged on what they deliver for this area."
