Chilly times will be avoided for some elderly and vulnerable residents in Luggate.
Volunteers Graham Taylor, Jim Bryson and Luggate Community Association chairman Graeme Perkins are part of a working bee to provide free wood for locals.
Mr Perkins said pine trees cleared from the Red Bridge recreation reserve project were being used to provide trailer-loads of firewood, and it was a ‘‘wee help’’ for some locals.
‘‘Every so often we get a couple of splitters going and get all the volunteers together and have a big wood-splitting session.’’
About twenty trailer loads were being provided for free to Luggate locals — ‘‘elderly ones and ones that are struggling a wee bit’’.
The volunteers replenished the trailer loads every now and again, providing help for their community, ‘‘mostly elderly or ones that are living on their own, and we’ve got a few solo mums and dads’’.
