JULY JOINT PRESS RELEASE 

As a result of the ongoing COVID -19 pandemic, the joint monthly meetings remain cancelled; however, as soon as we are in a position to do so, we will arrange for them to resume.

During this time of uncertainty you can still contact us and the details for both Prestwick Community Councils are listed below.

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

On a brighter note, as some lockdown restrictions begin to lift gradually, it is good to see the shops in Prestwick start to open again, albeit with restrictions, and for the time being we will have to learn to adapt to a new way of shopping.  We are sure the community of Prestwick will support their local shops as they have always done, and this is what makes Prestwick a great wee town.  Pubs and hotels can now open their beer gardens, with social distancing measures in place. Please remember the wearing of face masks becomes mandatory in shops on Friday 10th July 2020.  This is already mandatory on all types of public transport.

Stay safe everyone!
