South Ayrshire 1000
Citizens’ Panels are a way for local people to provide feedback on a range of issues and influence decision makers. The South Ayrshire Citizens’ Panel is called “South Ayrshire 1000” as it is the intention to have 1,000 members on the Panel. We have managed to recruit around 850 people who live in South Ayrshire who volunteered to http://www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/sa1000

CASTLEHILL ESTATE PATHWAY - PHASE III

Castlehill Woods Footpaths

Great news!! FHMCC is about to start work on phase III of the Castlehill Estate pathway project and expect the materials to be delivered on Wednesday 26th September.

This has been a major project by our Community Council for our Community and when it's finished it will benefit all of our local residents from all age groups and all levels of fitness and will allow folks the chance to enjoy a stroll and get back to nature in our local woods.

Although a huge amount of work has already been completed, we could really use a few more hands to complete this phase. Can you spare an hour or two of your time on Thursday 27th, to help complete this phase? If you can then please email me for more details.

WHEN A COMMUNITY COMES TOGETHER AMAZING THINGS CAN HAPPEN.

 

 

Litter Pick

Ian McPherson has been in touch about an area which badly needs a litter pick. The area in question is around the public car parks at Holmston House, the Mill Street car park, Mill Brae and Station Brae. Following a recent walking tour which took in these areas, the comments and feedback were extremely negative.

The next walking tour will be around the same time as the Open Doors event in September and we would like to take action on this before that event.

As usual, FHMCC will arrange for litter pickers, bags, gloves etc and we plan to meet on the 28th at 6.30pm at the car park in Mill Brae.

Can you please let me know if you will be able to come along and help - we can use all the hands we can get.

FOREHILL LIBRARY ACTIVITY

Knit and Natter Group
FHMCC has recently made a donation of wool to our local Knit and Natter Group.

If you enjoy knitting and a good blether, the ladies of our local Knit and Natter Group would love your company at their weekly get together in Forehill Library. The group meet each Thursday afternoon to knit items which are then donated to worthwhile causes, (one of the most recent was the neo-natal clinic at Crosshouse). At the same time they manage a good old natter to set the world to rights. And it's free to join!

Whatever your knitting skills, your help will make a difference to the number of items made. If you can't spare the time to go along, why not donate some wool to help their cause – just hand it in to the Library any day.

If you fancy becoming a bit of a Knit, drop in to Forehill Library on Thursday between 2pm and 4pm. Tea and coffee are available and cost a modest 50p per cup.
