Home Security Advice from Police Scotland:




We, the undersigned, are opposed to the proposed closure of Forehill Post Office, which is widely used by our local Residents and those from surrounding areas. We call on the Post Office to:
  • find a suitable alternate location for the post office within Forehill shopping arcade
  • fully consult with local residents on any future proposals
Forehill Post office is a valued and valuable commodity not only in Ayr East but also surrounding areas where local POs have already closed. Forehill Post Office is used by all age groups including retired, elderly and more vulnerable Residents, young Mums with infants to tend, Residents who have no time to visit the town centre, and those living alone who value contact with a local institution not only for their financial needs but also for the more personal human contact and friendly face it provides. Visiting the local post office is a key way in which people of any age, whether they live alone or not, can enjoy meeting others for a happy break in their day.

Saw this on FB and wanted to share.

“For all those people out there alone or in families who end up self-isolating, let's start a movement that if there is something tied to their front door handle; maybe a teatowel or ribbon etc, it means they need someone to collect essentials for them and would alert neighbours that assistance is needed. I'm thinking of the elderly living alone with no family nearby or single parents.”

We could make a difference in our wee area if we share this post with FB friends and by word of mouth.

Here's what we can do. Let folks know that if they are in need during this pandemic, they should tie a tea towel to their front door handle to alert folk. All we have to do then is keep a look out for this signal. If you see it, chap the door and ask how you can help. It may be just taking them a loaf or a pint of milk, or helping them contact their GP. Doing this one small kindness could make all the difference to folk who are alone and who really need a hand. Like and share if you are ‘in’. And then keep your eyes peeled.
