Girvan’s visitor information point has re-opened for the 2015 season and is set to expand on its initial success of last year.

The information point is situated in the Girvan Townhouse in Knockcushan Street and a team of volunteers is now set to ensure that it will be open six days a week and potentially open for a time on Sundays as well.

The centre had a small re-opening on 1 April, where more volunteers were encouraged to attend before officially opening again for the tourist season over the Easter Weekend.

It is designed to be the place to go for visitors to Girvan and the surrounding area and is packed full of leaflets with details of things to do and see in the Carrick area as well as upcoming events.

And after being open only three days a week in 2014, those involved in the project are doubling their efforts this summer.

The information point will be open on Monday-Saturday from 10am-4pm on the left hand side of the ground floor of the Townhouse.

The project had been three years in the making before opening up last year and was first brought to the Girvan Community Council by Winifred Wright.

Winifred and other individuals worked tirelessly to get it set up and opened in glorious sunshine in May last year.

With plenty of information on things to do, as well as the most updated public transport timetables serving the area and local business numbers, the information point is also useful for locals.
