Skip

A skip will be in the village from Friday the 19th April to Monday the 22nd April.

Dates for 2019 can be found here.

Note that the skip is to be situated behind the fence not on the gravelled area in front of it.

Bins Schedule

The shedule for bin collections for the year 2019/20 is now available.
It can be found on the dates menu or by clicking here.


Fibre Broadband Now Available

At last you can order fibre broadband in the village. On using it for a few weeks now my speeds vary from 20Mb to 55Mb using online speed tests, in reality I can get up to 8.4Mb in file downloading and above this on streaming. I can watch sport online via BBC or SKY without buffering. The other weekend I had windows with Rugby, Football and Cricket all open and without any buffering. Speed still dips in the evenings but this is probably due to the server end not the connection.

For those nearer the exchange speeds will be greater for those outside the village the speeds will reduce according to distance from the exchange.

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 2 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.

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 village shop.
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.
