Braes o' Barrmill Tribute to Billy Edmunds ... See MoreSee Less

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... ...

This does not affect the Barrmill Community Centre as it is not NAC owned. However, it does affect the much loved Beith Library and Community Centre as well as others in the valley which are used by so many Barrmill residents. Please go online and have your say ...Consultation is set to resume on how community facilities operate in future across North Ayrshire.This will mark the third stage of the comprehensive consultation, ensuring local residents have a real voice in how libraries, community centres and halls deliver their services.Proposals are taking shape thanks to the input of local communities and, from today (Friday, March 5) people are invited to view and comment on these plans.The emphasis of the proposals is to ensure that these vital services continue to be delivered in communities across North Ayrshire.A major element of this consultation will be to how to best deliver library, community centres and halls in a post-Covid world.Cabinet Member for Participatory Democracy, Councillor Louise McPhater, said: “Although we started this consultation process long before Covid, it’s become very clear that we are have to take on board the lessons learned during the pandemic to ensure we have services which fit the needs of our communities. “Throughout lockdown, we worked hand-in-hand with local residents through our community hubs to offer help and support where it was needed.“That’s why we’ll be continuing this partnership working in this latest phase of our consultation, giving the residents a prominent role in how the services are shaped.”Due to current lockdown restrictions, face-to-face consultation will not be possible however everyone will get the chance to take part.The safest, most effective way to gather everyone’s views is online.Until May 5, you can view and comment on the proposals at www.north-ayrshire.gov.uk/yourvoiceyourviewThose who cannot access the online consultation can e mail us at communityfacilities@north-ayrshire.gov.uk or call the Council on 01294 310000 and hold "for all other enquiries" and we will set up a time to call you back and go through the consultation.The phone line will be open Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm, between April 6 and May 6.Details of the consultation will also be issued alongside Council Tax letters to ensure no-one misses out. ...

Very sad to discover that someone has stolen the wooden picnic table outside the Barrmill Park play area. This table (along with many others in the park) was donated and maintained by us with the help of Barrmill Conservation Group volunteers and was very much appreciated by people using the playpark. ...

Hi new to the page and could potentially be new to the area, I'm viewing the 2 houses for sale on Dunlop Road this weekend and don't know the area too well apart from passing through. My question is why did the house prices drop so dramatically around 2008 to 2010 and seem to continue on this trend to the present day according to past records of house sales? I know this could be just to a recession around that time but thought it unusual for the house prices not to have risen again, just wondered if there was another reason for this? Thanks in advance 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
