Gazette editorial- Support Girvan’s Christmas street party

Another week and another popular Girvan event is in need of your support.

Last week we urged you to turn out in support of the lantern procession and hopefully many of you will turn out tonight (April 1) at the McKechnie Institute to ensure this event is put back on the Girvan calendar after it was postponed in 2014.

And hot on its heels needing your support, is the Girvan Christmas Street Party. With only four people on the organising committee, it was a minor miracle the 2014 street party went ahead.

Like the lantern procession, the street party is an annual event which sees the Girvan community come together and there is a great atmosphere around the town.

It is a fantastic event for children in particular with plenty of fairground rides on offer as well as the chance to visit Santa’s Grotto.

The event clearly needs more people to help out though so The Gazette would urge Girvan residents who have enjoyed this event and feel they can help in any way or have ideas to make it better to attend the meeting on Monday April 6 at the Glendoune Centre starting at 7pm.

These events don’t just happen and will end if they are not supported by more people.

Tycoon Donald Trump’s plans for Turnberry are certainly grand and The Gazette firmly believes when all the work is completed at the resort, it will bring huge benefits to the area.

The billionaire has the cash but also the know how as to what makes a resort attractive to people all across the globe.

Trump Turnberry under his guidance is set to become the place to be for weddings, functions and conferences with a magnificent new Caledonia Suite opening up for his presentation to golf club members on Saturday.

Whilst the sight of a Roman Centurion at the clubhouse might take some getting used to, there’s no doubt Trump truly believes Turnberry can be the best resort in the world.
