APRIL JOINT PRESS RELEASE 

As a result of the COVID -19 pandemic, the public meeting that was scheduled for 12th March to discuss the joining up of the two Prestwick community councils was cancelled; however, as soon as we are in a position to do so, we will arrange for the meeting to be rescheduled.

Both Community Councils usually hold regular monthly meetings and these have also been suspended until further notice.  We will shortly hold a virtual meeting on Zoom now that previous security issues have been addressed, however this will not yet be open to members of the public. 

During this time of uncertainty, you can still contact us and we would encourage you to view this joint website, which also has newsfeeds from the Scottish Government and South Ayrshire Council about COVID – 19, plus links to helpful information.

SAC are working with communities to provide support during COVID -19 and have a list of groups and organisations who are registered with them – SAC Community Support Groups.             

Most residents of Prestwick are aware there are some streets in our town which are one way. While streets are relatively quiet just now, please do not be tempted to take short cuts and drive up the wrong way. This is especially the case for Gardiner Street.  There may not be traffic wardens about at the moment, but this is still an offence and could lead to a serious accident.     

Jim Ronney of PNCC has set up a daily quiz, with a series of questions to test your knowledge on a variety of subjects to while away the hours and have some fun during the lock-down. (answers given the following day). Do give it a go and try not to google the answers first!                                       

Should you have any queries/concerns, PNCC can be contacted via their Secretary Margaret Milligan on 01292 476396, and PSCC via their Chairman Norrie Smith on 0795 146 7232

Stay safe everyone!
