Brooke at the double!

AMBULANCE crews in Stranraer and Newton Stewart are sitting pretty thanks to Brooke Stewart, 8. Brooke, a pupil at Minnigaff Primary, has been hearing all about ambulance work. Her mum Dana has a long-time schoolfriend – Sam Wright – who's now a paramedic based at Stranraer. Dana told the Free Press: 'Brooke had done things for Sam such as making a NHS rainbow painted stone for her. "Then she said; "Can we donate a bench for Sam?" The family run Greengrass Landscaping & Garden Furniture, but it has been affected by the Covid-19 lockdown – as have so many firms. 'We thought it about it,' says Dana, 'and decided we'd do what we could.' Stranraer was first to get its bench and after an official handover at the end of last week, pictured, now Newton Stewart have their bench too.
