After being threatened with closure, the Carrick Sports Club in Maybole is definitely remaining open.
An interim committee was formed after a meeting in February and Brian Connolly is now the convenor of the club.
He said: “It would appear that rumours of the demise of the Carrick Sports Club were greatly exaggerated and the message from the new, fully represented committee is that the club has a bright future.
“Our first priority was to stabilise the finances of the club and immediately look to improve the benefits we offer to members.
“This will include a varied and viable programme of entertainment utilising both the smaller downstairs lounge and the upstairs suite.”
The club has received a grant from the South Ayrshire Development Fund and memberships are available in various categories ranging from £10 to £30.
