May Update

Although the current restrictions still prevent us having our joint monthly meetings, we continue working behind the scenes to provide responses to any queries and complaints we have received. However, we have recently been advised by SAC that we will now be able to hold formal on-line meetings, and details of the forthcoming meetings will be published in due course.

Here on our website, you will find newsfeeds from the Scottish Government, South Ayrshire Council, NHS, and any updates on our meetings, virtual or otherwise. Our Facebook & Twitter pages also provide items of interest. We would also encourage you to check regularly on the NHS Ayrshire & Arran website for any updates on changes to services. 

We are pleased to report that after numerous complaints and reminders to Roads Alliance from ourselves, the broken lamp post situated on East Road, has, at long last been replaced, and is no longer a health and safety hazard!!

As many of you are aware, dog fouling is a major cause of concern, and you may have noticed we have been busy stencilling signs at various hot spots, to remind dog owners to ‘pick it up, and bin it’. Hopefully this will encourage people to do just that.

Weather permitting, members of PNCC/PSCC hope to hold a joint litter pick on Saturday 5th June, with a view to making this a regular event where members of the public will be invited to participate. Indeed this was a regular occurrence before the Pandemic struck.

The Community Garden in Boydfield Gardens has been tidied up and looks very spruce in the sunshine.  The garden has brought a great deal of pleasure to many over the past few years, thanks to those from the community taking the time to plant shrubs, flowers etc. We are actively seeking donations of plants, flowers and seeds, along with willing volunteers to bring the raised beds to life in a flurry of bright colours. If you are green fingered and wish to help, please feel free to go along and show off your skills, or alternatively contact us. 

Thank you and Good Luck

Finally we would like to wish Police Sergeant Dean Barlas, who acted as the Police Liaison Officer at our meetings, a very happy retirement, and thank him most sincerely for the help and support he gave to us.                                                              

HOW TO CONTACT  NHS Ayshire & Arran

We have been notified of a change to how to contact NHS Ayshire & Arran for NON-LIFE THREATENING CONDITIONS:

While people in Ayrshire and Arran should continue to call 999 or go directly to A&E in emergencies, those with non-life threatening conditions who would usually visit A&E should call NHS 24 – day or night – from 3 November. People can also continue to call their GP practice for urgent care or access help online from NHSinform.scot                                       

WATCH OUT FOR FRAUDSTERS 

Take Five is a national campaign that offers straight-forward and impartial advice to help everyone protect themselves from preventable financial fraud. This includes email deception and phone-based scams as well as online fraud – particularly where criminals impersonate trusted organisations. Led by Financial Fraud Action UK (part of UK Finance) and backed by Her Majesty’s Government, it is being delivered with and through a range of partners in the UK payments industry, financial services firms, law enforcement agencies, telecommunication providers, commercial, public and third sector organisations.
