WHAT do a cleansing operative, a libraries team, a cemetery worker, Girvan Resource Centre team and an apprentice plasterer all have in common?

They were named this week as South Ayrshire Council Outstanding People Award winners at a ceremony in Ayr Town Hall.

The Outstanding People Awards is the council’s reward and recognition scheme and celebrates those employees who go the extra mile to deliver the highest quality of service to residents and colleagues across South Ayrshire.

The finalists were selected throughout the year from more than 130 nominations from council employees and members of the public.

The Girvan Resource Centre Team, pictured, were nominated for the work they have been doing to ensure the Girvan Opportunities project is a success.

Following the withdrawal of Ayr College Further Education services in Girvan for people with learning difficulties, the Girvan Resource Team developed a tertiary curriculum to be delivered locally by staff and volunteers.

The team get involved with all activities much to the appreciation and benefit of their clients.

Girvan Opportunities offers courses that develop social, employment and independent living skills and it is the hard work and determination of everyone in the Team that is to be celebrated with this nomination.
