The toughest thing Dungannon Mayor Kenneth Reid usually has to cut is a ribbon when attending one of his many photo calls across the borough.
But the Torrent councillor has moved to harder challenges, tearing through thick bark with a chainsaw as part of a clean-up operation along Coalisland Canal.
Councillor Reid dropped his mayoral chains of office and sharp suits as a he stepped out in work boots and a boiler outfit to help with the clean up on Saturday, February 25.
He was among a group of volunteers from the canal committee who stripped away overgrown branches and brambles at Mack’s Lock along the waterway.
