The Men’s Shed submitted a proposal to Council to enhance the 19 litterbins along Grey Street with a simple Celtic theme design.

Shed Member Bill Hardie said they set out to complement the existing Celtic designs in the town.

“This project provided an opportunity for the members of Glen Innes Men’s Shed to contribute something back to the community as a thank-you for the support we have received,” he said.

“On each bin, four of these plates would have the tartan of a Celtic nation plus Glen Innes’ tartan and four would be a Celtic knot design.

“After approval by Council an approach was made via Shed member Howard Eastwood to Photo Create to discuss how best this could be achieved and they were very supportive and produced the plates at cost price to the Shed as part of their commitment to the town, which made the project viable.”

Mr Hardie said the plates were then sized and drilled at the Men’s Shed and with the assistance of Council staff they were installed.

“Hopefully, the results speak for themselves and perhaps Glen Innes now has litterbins, which give the town a truly Celtic feel,” he said.

Glen Innes Severn Mayor Colin Price said the men’s shed put forward a quality proposal and he was happy to see it come to fruition.

“The end result is good, they have done a quality job in delivering what was always a worthwhile project for the town,” he said.

“I’d like to pay tribute to the men’s shed group for always having the best interest of the town at heart, they are a wonderful organisation and projects like this shows their community focus.”
