Shona and Ellie Turnbull attended on behalf of the Restart Group, which needs money to pay for a heated cabinet for a defibrillator and for maintenance including special pads for children. In the long term they would like 3 publicly accessible defibrillators around the town - one in the town centre, one at Larghan and one in the northern part of the town. The group is working with the local fire service which does CPR training in the local primary school.
Paul Noble attended for Strathmore Men's Shed, which currently has 30 members and operates at 1a High Street, behind the Lime Tree Restaurant.

Paul said "As well as a craft workshop, it is also a social place where we can sit and have a bit of banter." The Shed is open on Tuesdays 5.30 to 9.00 and Thursdays 2.00 to 5.30.
