Candidate  Mary Elliot

I have been a Community Councillor for the last 6 years and have enjoyed the experience.

I have enjoyed with other fundraisers fundraising for the Community Council and through this we have been able to pass on to others including schools, food bank, and various other charities.

I have also been proactive in petitioning regards the times of our struggling bus service, as it was a situation I felt strongly about.

I have put myself forward again to serve with the CC.


Candidate  Sandra Taylor

I have been on the Community Council for approximately 6yrs representing Forehill and Holmston.

During that time we have managed to make some positive changes to the area and deal successfully with residents complaints, the biggest one being getting the council to rethink the cycle lane on Holmston Road. We have also done a lot of fundraising and as far as I’m aware we are one of the few if not only community council to do this. The funds we have raised have been distributed to all sorts of projects in the local area the main one being putting a path in Castelhill Woods so prams and wheelchairs have access. We have also distributed money to local school projects, food banks and through sponsorships. We would love to continue the good work we have done and I would be honoured to represent you for another term.


Candidate  Lisa Sloan

I am a single parent living in Mount Oliphant Crescent. This is my first time standing for the Community Council. I am a carer both in my profession life and my personal as I look after my disabled mum who lives with me.

I am dearly passionate in making this area a safe, clean and vibrant place to be for everyone. In my day to day work I see some of the problems faced locally by some of the elderly and less able and wheelchair users in access to shops and using the pavements safely. I am also aware as the mother of a teenage daughter that there are few facilities in the area for our children and I would like to be instrumental in trying to change this. Should I get your vote I will promise to work tirelessly to address the concerns of the locals and keep up the fantastic work the current council have been doing.


Candidate  Steven Mackie

I am a 23 year old male who has been going to community council meetings for a number of years now.

I have been a volunteer youth worker at Room Sixty youth club on main street, Ayr since I was 18, so I feel I am very knowledgeable when it comes to youths, particularly in their teens, so I can use this to my ability to interact with our youth to get them doing more practical things out with school.

I am also a business owner of a new gift shop in Ayrs Carrick street, so I am also building my experience levels up in terms of business, and meeting new people and contacts this way. This has proved challenging, but hopefully rewarding in the long run!

I feel I can bring more of our communities together through my experiences so far, whether that be organising events in the summer to get us all mixing with different backgrounds, supporting our youth, personally visiting people in the community who may need some assistance, or just being that friendly face.

I truly believe that my youthfulness will, alongside more experienced members, be a breath of fresh air to our community, and I can't wait to see our communities getting stronger!


Candidate  Laura McIlloney

I live in the Forehill Area with my son and our pet cat. I am the founder of a charitable organisation and also regularly raise funds for my chosen charity which supports bereaved parents and families in Ayrshire. I am a secondary school teacher and so children and young people are always at the forefront of my mind and I care deeply about improving their lives.

I am running for Community Councillor to help support young people and work to reduce youth disorder in the area, as well as to support elderly and vulnerable members of our community who may feel isolated. I have a strong moral compass and feel building a strong sense of community where we support each other, shall help to make Forehill an even better place to live. I hope you consider a vote for me.
