South Ayrshire Life in Running for National Award

Our unique South Ayrshire Life community information self-management tool has been shortlisted for a national award.

South Ayrshire Life, which is based in Newmarket Street, Ayr, is in the running for the Health and Social Care Alliance’s Self Management Resource of the Year 2019 title.

The Scotland-wide award scheme recognises organisations which are leading the way in helping people manage their own health and wellbeing and putting them in control when it comes to improving their lives.

South Ayrshire Life, which boasts a website, a Freephone helpline and a community information centre, is up against the Be Active Life Long Groups from Moray and The Action Group, West Lothian, for the prestigious award.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony which takes place during Self Management Week on Tuesday, October 8 at the Scottish Parliament, sponsored by Alex Neil MSP.

The South Ayrshire Life service, run by Voluntary Action South Ayrshire (VASA), helps people find social groups and activities as well as signposting them to the right services when they need a helping hand. They also host more than 40 drop-in advice sessions run by 25 different organisations every month at their base in Newmarket Street.

A77 Auchenblane – Resurfacing Works

August 13, 2019by DaillyParishCommunity News

A77 Auchenblane – Resurfacing Works

Further to initial consultation regarding the weekend closure for the A77 Auchenblane works, we’ve revised the proposed diversion route following comments from consultees who are affected by the works and associated diversion.

Due to concern raised by consultees, we are proposing to split the diversion, one for northbound traffic and one for southbound traffic in order to reduce any effect the diversion has on the communities.

The works on the A77 at Auchenblane, North of Kirkoswald,  are proposed to commence on 8pm Friday 16th of August until 6am Monday 19th of August, working under a full closure of the A77.

During these closures, northbound traffic will be diverted from Turnberry to Ayr via Maidens (A719), while southbound traffic will be diverted from Maybole to Girvan Via Crosshill/Dailly(B7023-B741-B734)– See attached diversion drawing.

The works involve resurfacing approximately 0.6 km of existing Trunk Road. Works are expected to be fully complete byMonday 19th August at 6am.

PLEASE NOTE – There will be no provision for windfarm / abnormal load movements through the works during the times stated above.

It should be noted that emergency services will not be affected by these works.
