Barrmill and District Community Association - North Ayrshire
Barrmill and District Community Association runs and manages a community centre and community garden for the benefit of local residents in and around the villages of Barrmill, Greenhills and Burnhouse.
Group members and community volunteers work with a range of partners including statutory and non-statutory agencies to deliver a range of activities, events and classes. As with many rural areas, isolation is an issue and many local people are reliant on the local centre for services and as a social outlet.
The group’s purpose is to: improve community well-being and cohesion; create a vibrant and sustainable community; and create the opportunity for people to develop skills and knowledge. The association has consulted the local community on plans to upgrade the hall in the near future, with an architect's plans, options appraisal and consultant's brief all already in place.
