Proposed Changes To Bus Service Route 1

In August 2017 Stagecoach propose to alter bus routes and times of service No 1 in the Hillfoot/Masonhill area.

Forehill, Holmston & Masonhill Community Council have been approached by concerned local Residents and we support their current petition opposing these changes. The petition is available for signature in Forehill Library. We ask our Residents who cannot manage in to the Library to sign the online petition by clicking on this link:-

South Ayrshire Befriending Project is currently recruiting volunteers! For an application form please telephone 01292 264000, email info@bfriend.org.uk or download from our website at www.bfriend.org.uk.

South Ayrshire Befriending Project Management Group Recruitment

The South Ayrshire Befriending Project (SABP) is a small, locally-run charitable company (limited by guarantee), based in Ayr and is looking to recruit new Board members. We wondered whether you would be able to circulate this within your group to see if anyone would be interested.

The Project was established in 1996 and has a proven track record of providing an effective befriending service for socially isolated and vulnerable young people (aged 8 to 18) within South Ayrshire, focusing mainly on those with social or emotional difficulties, but also including some with whose social isolation is attributable to learning difficulties or diagnosed medical conditions. In its sector of expertise, the Project has been accredited as Excellent with respect to the Befriending Networks' professional standards of good practice.

With budgeted annual expenditure of less than £150,000, and a small employed staff team of 5 (required to carry out the functions of planning, co-ordinating and administering the Project's day-to-day activities), the SABP supports around 50 young people each year through the provision of 1:1 befriending and group activities.

A small Management Group of unpaid volunteers is responsible for strategically overseeing the work of the Project's paid staff and unpaid befrienders.

The Project is constantly seeking to ‘recruit’ suitably qualified/experienced people on an unpaid voluntary basis to work alongside, or as a member of the Project's Management Group.
In particular, the Project is looking for people:

  • who have a genuine interest and concern for the welfare of children and young people (aged 8-18) within South Ayrshire whose lives are disadvantaged due to social or emotional difficulties, and/or diagnosed medical conditions or learning disabilities.
  • ideally with some experience of :
    • working in an organisation/establishment (e.g. schools, social work, child care charities, etc.) involved with the ‘set’ of children and young people whom the Project aims to assist; and/or
    • Knowledge / understanding of governance applicable to the voluntary sector (including current relevant legislation applicable to Charities, employment, health & safety at work, child protection, etc.);
    • Fundraising;
    • Financial planning and management;
    • Staff management, policy development and decision making; and
    • ICT skills and data protection.
The members must be willing to:
  • commit to attending the meetings of the Management Group (which meets approximately once every six weeks from 7pm for up to about to 2 hours);
  • contribute constructively to the decision making process involved in the development of SABP as a charitable organisation;
  • assume responsibility for the governance of SABP; and
  • support the work of the paid staff and unpaid volunteer befrienders, undertaking the daily running of the project.
If you or anyone else you know are interested and possess the skill set and/or experience as outlined above, and have a desire to make a positive and constructive contribution to the Project’s Management Group, with a willingness to give up some of your time in the interests of the Project and its work with young people, please get in touch with the Project to register your interest and/or obtain further information.

 

 

 

Ayr residents face seven weeks of road delays with Scottish Water work

Roadworks

Ayr faces seven WEEKS of potential hell on the roads as Scottish Water rip up pipes.
Temporary traffic lights will be used on Holmston Road, on Dongola Road at its junction with Holmston Road, on the Station Road-Holmston Road double roundabouts on the A79 and A70 and on the Castlehill Road-Holmston Road double roundabout.

Only that the schools are off will save there being complete chaos in the area - one of the three main arteries into town.

There will also be a road closure on Belmont Road, at the level crossing, for about six weeks as part of seven weeks of work starting on about July 11. During this six week period of work, temporary traffic lights will be used on Fenwickland Road at its junction with Belmont Road, Belmont Avenue at its junction with Belmont Road, Nursery Road at its junction with Belmont Road and Meadow Park at its junction with Belmont Road.

There will be a road closure in place in Mill Brae for one week from July 5 as part of seven weeks of work to upgrade pipes.

A Scottish Water spokesman said: “We will do everything we can to complete our work and lift the road traffic management as quickly as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience to road users and thank them in advance for patience.”

If our Good Morning Call goes unanswered and the person can't be located we will alert nominated contact persons or the emergency services to a potential health problem. Help will be sent, 365 days a year.

  • Monthly social outings, our Get Togethers
