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.

Daffodil Bulbs

Daffodils

Community Councillors Bill White and Anne Miller have been out and about this week planting 2000 daffodil bulbs in the area. The bulbs, (donated by SAC), have gone in at the grassy areas in St Andrews Street, Lochlea Drive, Lothian Road and Hillfoot Road at the foot of Shavin Brae.

We can't wait to see how they come along in the spring and hope everyone in the area enjoys the spash of colour they will bring.

We hope to do more of this next year in other areas of FHM

The Ayrshire Link of Chernobyl Children's Lifeline

The Ayrshire Link of Chernobyl Children's Lifeline raises funds to support the children of Ukraine and Belarus, whose lives will be forever affected by the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.

The charity helps the children by providing holidays, medical treatment, and ongoing support and will be bringing a group of girls from the Ukraine to Ayrshire at the end of June.

The charity is looking for your help by asking for donations of clothing and items that will help the girls get the most out of their visit.

Items that they particularly need include unused PJs, pants, socks, t-shirts, leggings, hairbrushes, and hair bobbles - suitable for girls aged 9-14.

Items can be left at the collection point at South Ayrshire Council, County Buildings, Ayr KA7 1DR during normal office opening hours.

The deadline for donations is Friday 21 June so that the items can be ready to be handed over when the girls arrive.

Thanks in advance for your support.
