COMMUNITY-MINDED youngster Mark Evans spent 10 hours helping to paint railings in the Barnton basin.

The 10-year-old, who is a pupil at Barnton Community Primary School, was part of a team of 50 people working on the facelift.

He had three breaks and had arm ache the next day as a reminder of his efforts.

He had taken part in the painting day with his gran, adding: “It was good to do so that people can see the railings more clearly, and I would do something like it again.”
