Forehill Library at 31-33 Mt Oliphant Crescent is a hive of activity! Your local library is an ideal place to spend some time and is open to all ages 0-100! Why not check it out and try something new?

There are board games and jigsaws, a knit and natter group, a colouring book station and as colouring books are increasingly found to be a good source of therapy and relaxation- adults are catered for here too!

Tea and coffee is 50p a cup.
You can make use of the computers within the library, or you can take your own laptop and share the FREE wi-fi.

Forehill, Holmston & Masonhill Community Council is looking for suggestions for activities that you want to see at your local library.

Message us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/FHMCCAYR or email secretary@fhmcc.org.uk with your suggestions.
It's YOUR community so please get involved!

South Ayrshire 1000 - Citezens’ Panel
South Ayrshire Council with its partners in the public and voluntary sectors, wants to survey attitudes and views on public services and policy issues.
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

The Scottish Government has recently set up a national website highlighting the role of community councils.

Carers and Young Carers Survey

Give us your views to help us develop our 2018 to 2021 Carers Strategy

At some point in our lives, many of us will care for a relative, friend or neighbour who needs support in their daily lives.

South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership is keen to hear what kind of support you need in the run-up to the new Carers (Scotland) Act which comes into effect in April 2018, to support people who provide unpaid care (carers).

Your feedback will help us decide how we should plan to make things better for carers in South Ayrshire over the next couple of years.

This questionnaire has been designed to seek the views of both adult and young carers. You do not need to complete every question but we would like as many views as possible.

Any information you give will be treated in strict confidence and will be used only for the purposes of developing a Carers Strategy that meets the needs of those living in South Ayrshire.

Please note that the questionnaire will close on Friday 15th December 2017.

If you require this questionnaire in another format please contact Gabrielle Coyle on 01292 612340 or email gabrielle.coyle@south-ayrshire.gov.uk
