THE OLYMPIC legacy will stay alight in Maybole with the official handover of fun day sports equipment.

Around 600 pupils from Cairn, Crosshill, Fisherton, Gardenrose, Kirkmichael, Maidens, Minishant, Straiton, and St Cuthbert’s primary schools had taken part in a Mini Games at Glebe Park when the Olympic Torch made its way through Carrick this summer, and funding was secured from South Ayrshire Council for two sets of multi-use sports equipment for use at the event.

Maybole schools recently officially took ownership of the equipment from the town’s community council and community association, and the sports kits are already booked out solidly until June next year.

Maybole Community Council chairman Mark Fletcher said: “Hopefully, from a sports day for fun a legacy for the future of sport in Maybole has begun.”
