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. ...

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

The ruins of the old pre-1850’s twin drawhole kilns at Broadstone Quarry, and some caves at the far end. These kilns burned limestone mainly for agricultural use. Between 1850 and 1870, more lime was transported by mineral railway for use in the Glengarnock Iron and Steel Works. The quarries were worked out before 1895, while the kilns were operated by the firm of Robert Craig until 1901. Many important marine fossils, including early sharks, were found in these quarries and preserved in the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery at the University of Glasgow. ... See MoreSee Less
