Taking Action

November 27, 2018by adminDailly News

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.

On Sunday 11th November 2018, the people of the United Kingdom and numerous countries across the world will mark the moment the guns fell silent at the end of the First World War. To play our part in remembering the sacrifice of millions of men and women, this Council agrees to commemorate this historic moment in the following ways:
We will work with people and communities across South Ayrshire to create a knitted banner of 2018 poppies that will become a long-lasting tribute to those lost in battle and that can be used at future Remembrance events.

Biosphere Certification Mark

Earlier in June  we were joined by the Scottish Government’s Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Tourism, Fiona Hyslop and Dr Beth Taylor, Chair of the UK National Commision for UNESCO who officially launched the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere certification award which will be awarded to businesses that can demonstrate high standards in delivering environmental and sustainable development benefits. The launch of the certification mark was a first for any UK UNESCO designation and  an opportunity to highlight the global value of the UNESCO designations and the potential of the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere to support sustainability, economic development and tourism in South West Scotland.

Over recent months a successful pilot scheme has taken place with 3 local businesses from the Accommodation, Food and Drink, and Outdoor Activity Sectors. Balkissock Lodge Bed and Breakfast, Adventure Centre for Education and Salad Brew which is a hydroponic salad and vegetable grower. Businesses using the certification mark hope to attract a premium value or more discerning customers.

The new scheme is free and more details on how to apply can be found by clicking here

Bogus Callers, Rogue Traders and Scams – Be Safe

November 27, 2018by adminDailly News

You have probably heard or read about people being targeted by cold callers on their doorstep, over the phone or by mail, maybe it’s already happened to you! Most people who call will be genuine but some could try to trick you into
parting with money. What are the dangers?
Cold callers might want access to your financial information to con you out of money. Some may try to trick their way into your home claiming to be from the Council, Police or a utility company and then try to steal your valuables. They might try to convince you that repair and maintenance work needs carried out to your home. This could result in sub-standard work at an inflated cost or work that’s not needed at all. Be Safe
Know who you’re dealing with – if in doubt seek advice before dealing with cold callers.
Never make a decision on your doorstep no matter
how good the deal sounds – reputable traders should allow you time to think.
Don’t be afraid to say NO’.
If you feel threatened contact the Police.
Need a Trusted Trader? South Ayrshire Council runs a Trusted Trader scheme to help give you peace of mind. It’s a directory of local businesses that have been vetted by Trading Standards who have made a commitment to treat their customers fairly.
If you’re looking for a trader you can have confidence in, or if you’re a trader looking to join the Trusted Trader Scheme please contact

Voluntary Action South Ayrshire (VASA) has teamed up with a national training provider, The Skills Network in Scotland, to offer all staff and volunteers of organisations in Ayrshire the opportunity to undertake a number of nationally recognised qualifications that are open to everyone and are completely free.

The courses are all offered as Online Distance Learning and ‘fully funded’ via the Government’s Adult Education Budget, meaning that everyone interested can complete the 10-12-week courses and also continue with work and social commitments. The Qualifications at Level 2 (SQA Level 5 equivalent) are free all year round, with some at Level 3 (SQA Level 6 equivalent) free for a limited time that would normally cost between £350.00 – £450.00.
