We have a fabulous competition with Hollywood Carpets down at Kingholm Quay.
Pauline Jack, who does our Style Council feature every second Wednesday has a fab rug and metal wall art to give away. In fact they are in this picture. The rug pictured and the beautiful butterfly wall hanging could be yours. We have two pictures, A and B, picture B has two things missing. If you can spot them email us at [email protected] and we will put you in the draw. Someone will win on Saturday afternoon!
Just after the 1 o’clock news on the Friday Magazine Show, catch Military Wife Annie Fraser talking to host Cameron Murray.
The Military Wives are a choir apart, they have inspired across the nation, their single “Where-ever you are”, the Christmas Number one became the fastest selling single in the 21st century, their album is number One across the UK and they have raised over £500,000 for the Royal British Legion and the SSAFA Forces Help.
Alive is proud to have Annie on the show.
If you could ask Annie a question what would it be? Email us at [email protected] we may ask it for you!
Now we do have to wonder what our Tuesday night Guru of Music does with bin liners after watching his chosen choone!

It is International Women’s Day on 8 March, the Domestic Abuse and Violence Against Women Partnership has organised a free screening of ‘Killing Us Softly 4’ at the Robert Burns Film Centre, Dumfries. It starts at 6.30pm.
The film provides a very interesting insight into the role of gender stereotypes in connection with gender-based violence and how advertising impacts on our culture. There will be an opportunity for an informal discussion after the film. Tea/coffee will be provided.
Deputy Chief Constable Mike McCormick said: “International Women’s Day marks women’s achievements in their pursuit of equality. The Domestic Abuse and Violence Against Women’s Partnership wants to celebrate the advances that have been made’ but also to recognise that far too many women continue to experience forms of abuse and violence including domestic abuse, rape, stalking and harassment. As a Partnership we are committed to working towards the elimination of violence against women and want to encourage awareness through showing this DVD exploring how women are presented in advertising and having a discussion afterwards. We hope that this will help raise understanding of the many issues that impact on women and explore the many issues around violence against women.”
The film will also be screened on 26 March at 1pm at the Ryan Centre in Stranraer.
