Here’s your chance to win a year’s free membership of Girvan’s new swimming pool by choosing the name and designing the new logo.

We’re looking for a name that really stands out and puts across a strong message about what a great facility this will be.

The competition to name the new facility and design its logo is open to both children and adults who live or work in the Girvan and South Carrick area and all entries must be received by 5pm on Monday 14 September 2015.

Entries must be submitted on an official entry form and a judging panel – made up of representatives from South Carrick Community Leisure and South Ayrshire Council – will select a shortlist of entries.

Shortlisted entrants will then get the opportunity to work with a professional graphic designer to finalise their idea before the winner is chosen. The winner will receive a year’s free membership at the new pool.

Entries must be returned using one of the official entry boxes available in all Girvan and South Carrick schools, Girvan Customer Service Centre, Girvan Townhouse, Girvan Library, the Carrick Buildings, Carrick Gazette offices and locations in South Carrick villages. Alternatively, they can be submitted online at

Full terms and conditions are available at, on request from 0300 123 0900 or by writing to Girvan and South Carrick Design Competition, Girvan Customer Service Centre, 17-19 Knockcushan Street, Girvan KA26 9AG.

SCCL chairman Andrew Sinclair said: “This is our facility for the people of Girvan and South Carrick, so let’s make sure we give it a name it deserves. It’s time to get creative!”
