Good news and bad news comes from St Nicholas Church Boys’ Bri­gade.

The good news is that num­bers in all sec­tions have in­creased.

The bad news is that the present lead­er­ship is un­der pres­sure.

The area need­ing as­sis­tance is the Ju­nior Sec­tion, where a male helper and a pi­anist are re­quired.

The Com­pany Sec­tion also needs helpers for a range of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing phys­i­cal, out­door and hob­bies.

The South Church Jum­ble Sale raised £ 296.68 for the Sun­day school and Chris­tian Aid.


The Curte­can Burn on the Belleisle Es­tate in Ayr has be­come such a threat to the 15th and 16th holes of the Sea­side Golf links that its course is to be al­tered.

It was ex­plained to Ayr Parks Com­mit­tee on Mon­day that the stream con­tin­ues to gouge into the banks and the ero­sion on the course is threat­en­ing to get worse.

A me­chan­i­cal dig­ger will be used to re­duce the el­bow of the stream to a more gen­tle curve.

This will pre­serve the 15th green and the 16th tee.

The to­tal cost of the work is es­ti­mated at £ 600.


If you haven’t got your win­ter hosiery and un­der­wear se­cured you have lit­tle chance of get­ting any now.

All the man­u­fac­tur­ers and the whole­sale drap­ery houses have re­ceived wired in­struc­tions from the Gov­ern­ment, for­bid­ding the sale of fur­ther stocks.

A re­tailer who had ad­ver­tised a big stock for sale was called upon to hand it over to the Gov­ern­ment.

At home we will be shiv­er­ing in our pants.

Ah, well, so long as it ben­e­fits the boys on the bat­tle­front.
