Talk of the town from our social media
The news that the council spent over £ 4million on consultants in just two years sparked fury among readers.
John Murphy said: “I think it’s bad when thay take on apprentices for 12 months then kick them out with no money at Christmas. Why can’t they find something else for them? Come on South Ayrshire.”
Penny Mohan added: “They’re having meetings soon about rent rises in order to carry out future repairs ...... tut tut SAC you are a disgrace and should be well and truly ashamed at what you have spent honest people’s money on. For example cycle paths , architects and more that we don’t know about.”
Jimmy Millar said: “Those that can, do. Those that can’t, consult. I have found in my years in business.” Girvan’s iconic Co- op shutting after 80 years to make way for a McColl’s left readers in shock.
Libby McKenzie said: “It was a very sad day for some of us but it’s onward and upwards Girvan has a lovley furbished shop and please give it time. Let’s get December over and we will see more changes when Morrisons will be one of our suppliers packed under the name Safeway.”
Heather Ferrans added: “Ours changed to McColls a few months ago and prices have rocketed, not a few pence on everything but at least 50p on cheaper stuff and more on stuff over a fiver.” The debate on whether bouncing classrooms should be introduced got everyone talking.
Angela Gemmell said: “This is an amazing idea.
“If not for full day but at least half. This will support children with sensory seeking and sensory defensive issùes.
“The movement wi l l support with vestibular and proprioceptive seeking behaviours and allow those children to feel part of a group rather than be singled out as a trouble maker because they are sensory seeking.
“I think all teachers should have these in the class room and if not incorporate sensory seeking vestibular and proprioceptive activities in daily lessons. Adults do this it work why can’t children.”
Marsha Ford added: “My son was in the original class last year that took part in the study. He found it much easier to concentrate and was gutted that he wasn’t allowed to use them again this year.”
But some people aren’t all for the movement. Jason Denham disagrees.
He said: “So instead of sitting learning maths and English kids nowadays will be bouncing around on spacehoppers, wouldn’t have happened in my day.”
