NOTICE OF PROPOSED TIMBER EXTRACTION THROUGH VILLAGE
Dailly Community Council received the letter 9 May & map (download letter and map) from DGA Forestry LLP regarding upcoming harvesting works.
This was discussed at Dailly Community Council meeting 5 June, where a Bargany representative gave an update.
Please note the extraction route option directed by Ayrshire Roads Alliance is now revised to turning left from the West End over the bridge and up the Toll road, as opposed to turning right from the West End up Bridge Street.
Possible start around end July/August and that there would be 6 collections every day for approx. 2 weeks between 6am and 6pm, collecting timber from the stacking turning area at the end of West End Road off the old coach path.
Dailly Community Council welcome any questions and comments, which will be compiled and taken to the next meeting on Wednesday 3 July, when we hope Ayrshire Roads Alliance will be able to attend to discuss the proposed extraction route further.
“To Absent Friends has really captured people’s imaginations since we started it in 2014,” says Robert Peacock of Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief, the alliance of organisations behind the festival. “There have been some very poignant and moving events, as well as many lighter moments shared. Just because someone has died doesn’t mean they are not a part of our lives any more. They are there in our stories and memories. The festival gives people time and space to remember those people – whether it’s just raising a glass, or something more formal. In this day and age, we don’t often stop and do that.”
To Absent Friends will take place across Scotland from 1 – 7 November 2018. For further information contact Robert Peacock on or 0131 272 2735.

14th– 16th November in Stranraer “Taking Action”
The Scottish Rural Parliament brings together people from rural communities with decision-makers, for three days of celebration and exploration. Participants examine a wide-range of issues affecting rural communities and make recommendations for change.
I learned new things, was exposed to new ideas about eliciting information and commitment from people and I enjoyed the buzz that was created at the event and being part of it.
Anyone who lives or works in rural Scotland, or who makes decisions which affect rural Scotland, can attend the Scottish Rural Parliament. It is free for people from community organisations to attend.
We aim to ensure that each region of Scotland is well represented and that there is a good mix of people with different backgrounds and interests.
The Rural Parliament has the feel of something with enormous potential. It could become a brilliant opportunity to translate community empowerment into action.
