Troon Locality Decides on Saturday 16th September

Troon Walker Hall, South Beach, Troon, KA10 6EFSaturday 16th September 10am-12pm

We would be extremely grateful if you could come along and help support us for the Troon and Villages Decision Day this Saturday. We will be bidding for funds to help us develop our visitor centre as a real, active and supportive community hub. We are especially focused on supporting young people and members of our community of every age group who may be feeling socially isolated. With the closing of local community resources including the village library and post office, we hope to provide a daily service for everyone in our area.

With your help we hope to secure funds to establish a regular community newsletter to be delivered throughout the area by youth groups. This will allow us to reach those who do not have access to computers and to involve them in our new weekly groups and activities. We would like to bid for funds to start an oral history project to encourage all members in our communities to record their reminiscences and to use it as an opportunity to meet new friends of all ages.

2018 is Year of Young People and we would love to encourage more young people to take ownership of their heritage and in doing so, become a part of a much wider community. We are bidding for funds to help establish a junior castle committee to give local children from Dundonald, Troon and the villages pride in their heritage and involvement in all areas of running their castle. We plan to purchase costumes for use by newly trained junior tour guides and to improve our education resources to support all our children and better reflect all social groups within our society.

If you could please spare half an hour this Saturday morning (you do not have to stay for the full event, although are more than welcome to do so) we would be extremely grateful! We cannot do this without your help.

We’ll also have a special visitor with us, who it is likely, will be the highlight of our stand!

Thank you all so much 😃
