Scottish Galvanizers has generously given its services for free to help create a new gate for a small village primary school.
The Glasgow-based plant was called upon to galvanize the steel gate, which has been installed at the entrance to Mouswald Primary, a school which serves the tiny village of Mouswald, approximately six miles from Dumfries.
The gate, which incorporates the name of the school across the top, has replaced an old and rusty predecessor at the facility, which currently caters for 14 pupils. In addition to Scottish Galvanizers donating its services for free, Dumfries-based firms Franklin Steel and blacksmiths John Gibson and Son Limited – both long-standing clients of Scottish Galvanizers – also donated the steelwork and welding required free of charge.
“The new gate looks fantastic and hopefully it will serve the school for years to come, as the steelwork being galvanized will ensure it is protected against rusting and corrosion,” Paul Tait, Commercial Manager of Scottish Galvanizers, commented.
“Full credit must also go to Rob Wealleans and everyone at Franklin Steel, not to mention Lee Hastings and the team at John Gibson and Son Limited, for giving their services so readily.”
