Report Road Defects

The more people who report defects the more likely it is that they will be dealt with.

Road Works Schedule

All the Amey roadworks can be seen on their website:

The weekly scheduled roadworks for SW Scotland is available in Excel spreadsheet format here.

Note these are the AMEY maintained roads so does not include the A714.
I can only upload these when they are sent to me so occasionally a week goes missing.
The Amey website has the roadworks always available


Litter

Litter along the roadsides is an ongoing problem in and around the village. The Community Council has been negotiating with South Ayrshire Council about litter signs for almost 4 years now with still no end product.

In a hope of improving the litter problem the CC has purchased litter pickers, gloves and bags which are available to anyone who is motivated enough to do some litter picking.

If you need any of these items contact either:

Ann Robertson on 07766 740179 or Andrew Clegg on 01465 821456

and we will get the supplies needed to you.


Church Services


Ths services in the hall have restarted and are on the third Sunday of the month.

DOG FOULING AND USE OF POOP BAGS

The Community Council would like to remind dog owners that "poop" bags are available free of charge from the dispensers at either end of the village.
Please be considerate to other members of the community and clean up after your dogs misdeeds.

The use of "poop" bags has been successful in helping to keep the village clean but some people are still being inconsiderate in having very kindly bagged their dogs poop they have then just hung the bag in a nearby bush or tree. Being a generous soul I would like to think that they were put there with the intention of collecting them on the return journey of their walk rather than a deliberate act. Please dispose of "poop" bags in a hygienic and environmentaly friendly way.
