By Cllr Iain Campbell (Councillor for Maybole, North Carrick and Coylton)
This is certainly an unusual period we are going through, and one which most of us will have never experienced.
On the positive side, it has also brought out the best in people as evidenced by the host of volunteer groups that have sprung up throughout South Ayrshire.
In Dunure, I would personally like to applaud the efforts of Mhairi Eaglesham, Leila Gibson, Helen Hunter and Marc Mccrindle in distributing the excellent newsletter from NCCBC. This has been received very well within the community and I am sure will lead to much more support for local businesses.
Mhairi would also like to mention the support given by Claire Bryan in her role as coordinator which has been invaluable to the group. Although most council offices are closed, I can assure the community that the Officers who are able to work from home are still pressing forward with the grant funding applications for the village, and our ambitious timetables are still achievable.
In Coylton, volunteer groups led by the Community Association and Community Council, have been delivering shopping and prescriptions to those who need the help, and thanks should go to Sarah Henman, Caroline Campbell and Laura McEwan for making this happen. So, although these are very trying times for us all, if you need the help of volunteers don't be afraid to ask, and by sticking to the advice given by the governments, we'll return to our normal way of live all the sooner.
