Today we held a memorial in the park for our friend Billy Edmunds who passed away earlier this year. A commemorative cherry tree was planted by his younger brother Albert and at its base, a memorial plaque fixed to a piece of Trearne Quarry limestone.Billy was a member of Barrmill Conservation Group from the very start, ten years ago, in 2011; and as a dedicated volunteer, he worked consistently for the village, rarely missing an event or workday .Using his joinery skills, over these years, he helped build most of the fences and timber structures in the park, the Deid Man's Planting fencing , as well as our own very solidly built tool store. He was a pleasant and patient, practical man, and enjoyed showing the children, and all volunteers young and old, how to use tools, sort stuff and build things. After an introduction by Fiona Fisher, dedications by Roger Griffith and Cllr Donald L Reid followed, together with poetry readings by Donald, Cllr Robert Barr and Gordon Wilson of the Jolly Beggars, of whom Billy was a member and past president. Jean Gilbert drew proceedings to a close by talking about how good a help Billy was and how we miss him so much but that every day, we also see reminders of him through his contributions all around us, in every inch of the park where he worked . Billy especially loved the poems of Barrmills policeman poet, Matthew Anderson who wrote fondly of the village.Farewell, to our good friend Billy, you were a good man and will not be forgotten. ...

Great news for our local library in Beith. 📚🙌Following a major consultation exercise, Full Council has today approved a report into the future of our halls, libraries and community centres. As a result, Beith, Saltcoats, Dreghorn and West Kilbride libraries will NOT be relocated.Thousands of residents had their say on plans to develop a Community Hub model which reflects the learning which has been gained over the past year through the way we delivered services to communities throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.While the majority of proposals put forward attracted support or acceptance by the majority of respondents, in some cases the local community did not support them.These views have been taken on board by the Council and as a result, it has been confirmed that libraries in Beith, Saltcoats, Dreghorn and West Kilbride will not be relocated to nearby community centres (Beith Community Centre, Argyle Community Centre, Townend Community Centre and West Kilbride Community Centre).Council Leader Joe Cullinane said: “Halls, Libraries and Community Centres are the social fabric that bring communities together and I believe that is something that we all value and these facilities are going to be even more important as we come out the current pandemic.“There were proposals in the final consultation that did not gain the support of those participating in the process. It was clear from the feedback we received, that local communities did not want us to relocate West Kilbride, Beith, Saltcoats and Dreghorn libraries to nearby community centres, so these will be retained.“We have demonstrated time and again, in deeds not just words, that when we ask citizens to participate in decision-making processes, we will listen, and we will act upon their wishes.”Full details are available here www.north-ayrshire.gov.uk/news/Outcome-of-consultation-into-halls-libraries-and-community-centres... ...

It is a great place for a picnic on a sunny day. ⛱️🦅Unfortunately, the birds have been dragging litter out of the bins looking for food and leaving a bit of a mess.🗑️But now, we have had some new extra-large birdproof litter bins installed by North Ayrshire Council.🏞️Green park, clean park, my dream park. ...
