Forehill Library

Did you know our local library offers more than just books? Shona hosts an afternoon Coffee & Chat group on the first Wednesday of each month. All are welcome. If you're looking for a meeting place for a group you organise, the library is available for this during normal opening hours. Pop in and have a chat with Shona and Eilidh about what your group does, and arrange your dates and times.


Have you considered using our Library as a meeting place for your group? Or even just catch up with your neighbours for a cuppa and a natter? It's a hive of activity and a great place to meet in our community!

If you have a group or activity and you're looking for a venue, pop in and have a chat about using the local facilities available.



Tea at 3

Our fantastic Forehill Library girls, Shona and Eilidh organised an afternoon “Tea at 3” event in the library in June and FHMCC were happy to present them with a cheque to help swell the fund.
Shona said “Just to let you know that the total raised at our Tea at 3 event on Monday was an amazing £338.92! Everyone is absolutely delighted with this amount - and am sure the Ayrshire Hospice will be too!

Many thanks for your donation and of course all your help and support.”
