Eastriggs Community Group is a voluntary organisation. They formed to fund raise and carry out community work to benefit the area and the local community.
The Community Group liaises with Dumfries & Galloway Council on problems that affect the community. These include roads, pavements, war memorial and planning. They also assist with the delivery of many community projects such as the Christmas event and social space maintenance. Most recently, the group are seeking to buy and install a defibrillator within the area, ‘The Green’. This area has witnessed some regeneration over recent years, they recognise the increased footfall and need for such a facility.
Funding by Cunninghame Housing Association will assist to buy a defibrillator to be installed at ‘The Green’. It will prove to be a vital asset in the area.
The funding came from the “Making Our Communities a Better Place Fund”. It runs throughout the year (1st April 2021 to 31st March) until the funding is exhausted.
We are very grateful for Cunninghame Housing Association’s contribution. With the help of the Making Our Communities fund we are able to buy a defibrillator for the Green quicker.
Isabelle Clark, Secretary and Treasurer of the group
We are delighted to give financial support to Eastriggs Community Group, assisting with the buying and installation of a defibrillator. Having a defibrillator close by can help save a life. If that is only one person, then it is worth having such a vital facility.
