STARTING with the bus shelters at the Whitesands and Buccleuch Street, it is part of a wider range of projects developed by the club to clean up and to draw greater awareness to the environment.

A team of Rotarians cleaned the bus shelters at the main bus stances at the Whitesands and a visible difference to the appearance was made in just over two hours. The club now intend to run a regular programme tackling and maintaining bus shelters throughout the town centre and expanding further afield if possible.

Devorgilla Rotary along with other partners hope to do their bit to keep the town looking at its best and ensure the ‘Queen of the South’ status.

The club have been instrumental with a programme of clean ups including cycle paths and parks in Dumfries, along with a programme of beach clean ups.

Devorgilla Rotary’s president Peter Atkinson offered his thanks to all of the volunteers that took part.

He said: “This project is a great demonstration of Rotary at work in our local community making a visible difference and improvement to our town.”

If you are interested in joining and taking part in future clean ups to the town, contact the club’s Facebook page @DumfriesDevorgilla.
