As long-running stories go, the development of a new swimming pool for Girvan and South Carrick is certainly near the top of the list for us here at the Carrick Gazette.
However, significant progress has been made recently by South Carrick Community Leisure, the group who have led the fight for a new pool.
Now the SCCL is giving you the perfect chance to get involved and have your say on the new facility.
Launching exclusively in this weeks Carrick Gazette, SCCL is giving you the opportunity to win a year’s free membership by coming up with a name for the new facility and by designing a new logo.
This is open to everyone living and working in Girvan and South Carrick, not already involved with the project and kids can submit their entries too.
The new pool is going to be run by the community for the community and this is an ideal and simple way for SCCL to bring the community together for a project that it is hoped will boost Girvan and South Carrick.
More exciting developments to do with the project are in the pipeline very soon so keep an eye out for future Gazettes.
For now, get your creative hat on!
