A day of community events

With this being the Jubilee weekend, we had a number of great events here in East Ayrshire including the Mauchline Holy Fair, the Newmilns Cattle show and Bonnyton gala event.

There was a positive turn out at all events, and as a proud unionist it was great to see the Union Jack flying.

The Mauchline Holy Fair was packed full of local people and people visiting the area. A lot of passionate people promoting their produce, such as an independent wine merchant, and Cameron’s Confectionery who produce homemade tablet – they are well worth a look and a taste!

There was a great sense of community about the fair and it was marvelous to see on the community stage up-to-date music for those who like pop and for those with traditional tastes in music there were the choirs and folk singers in the church. Well done to the organising committee for a great day.

I was proud to see at the Newmilns show many famers, highlighting the work they do here in Ayrshire. I really enjoyed the various activates on show and seeing so many young people at the event.

One day around East Ayrshire and we are bursting with pride in our local communities. Next week sees the official day for the Queens Diamond Jubilee and here in East Ayrshire we have our own special event with the torch visiting the area.

What a great place to live, Make it Kilmarnock!
