Vandals Damage Nithsdale Rowing Club

This week the Nithsdale amateur Rowing Club building at  Nith Avenue in Dumfries was covered in graffiti by vandals.

A spokesperson from the club told DGWGO “Unfortunately we were the target of vandalism on Tuesday night, along with Relationship Scotland building also. Some vandals have graffitied the walls and doors of the rowing club. The police have been notified.

We were in the process of tidying the clubhouse and outside area to get it ready for our annual rowing regatta on Saturday 22nd June where other rowing clubs from across Scotland and North England come to race.

It’s so disappointing that we now have this on our walls. Not a great welcome. We are struggling as a club for funding as it is and trying to increase our membership numbers recently holding open days and learn to row courses and trying to attract people to the sport.”

We as a club are appealing to any local people or businesses that could help out with paint donations and/or their time to cover the graffiti. If you help please contact us at n[email protected]
