Men’s Shed powers on

THE Gretna Green and Springfield Men’s Shed was supplied with a petrol driven power hose this week to help them clean up the area.

It comes courtesy of funding from Annandale East and Eskdale Councillor Archie Dryburgh.

He heard how the group had been busy over the summer bringing the public realm of Gretna Green and Springfield to a very high standard, by spraying weeds on pathways, grass cutting, clearing overgrown pathways of moss and maintaining the community owned park, including painting the play park equipment.

And he decided to help them with some new equipment.

Cllr Dryburgh said: “Men’s Sheds are really important, not just for the work they do within their local communities but for the individuals themselves, it is a great place to socialise and have a bit of fun, it allows men to get involved with other like-minded individuals and you can tell by the work that the Gretna Green and Springfields team do, that they really do take pride in their community work.

“The Men’s Shed are always welcoming of new members and it is great to see the work they do and it is commented on favourably by the local community.”

Responding, Mike Philips, of the Men’s Shed, said: “We want to thank Archie for his funding of the petrol driven power hose which will allow us to clean and clear pathways and now bus shelters, which will brighten up the assets of the local community.”
