Talk of the town from our so­cial me­dia

Ayrshire Post - - Reader Offer -

We told how pop­u­lar pub Wee Win­daes on Ayr’s New­mar­ket Street has been nom­i­nated for UK Par­lia­men­tary Pub of the Year.

Ish­bel Searle said: “The Wee Win­daes is by far the best pub in the land.

“The sur­round­ings, hospi­tal­ity, friend­li­ness to men­tion only but a few qual­i­ties.”

Carolyn Mckay said: “Went in there for lunch one day and this man is very wel­com­ing and friendly. The meal was good too! Good luck.”

Tommy Adams added: “All the best Jim McSherry.”

A new hous­ing es­tate could be built in Coyl­ton, erect­ing 53 prop­er­ties in a field of two, three, four and five bed­rooms.

Wil­lie Bone said: “If the houses were built at the Joppa end of the vil­lage, sited near par­al­lel to the A70 in to Ayr, Coyl­ton could be­come a dwelling sub­urb of Ayr!”

Lynne Pow­ell wasn’t a fan of the pro­posal. She said: “Dis­like! Ru­in­ing lovely spots!”

Ruth Greer said: “I moved to Scot­land 19 years ago and the one thing that I loved was all the beau­ti­ful green fields!

“So dif­fer­ent to Eng­land, which has built over so many beau­ti­ful ar­eas, cram­ming in as many houses as was pos­si­ble - yet now the same thing is hap­pen­ing here. It’s so sad.”

Bustling busi­ness in Prest­wick has been praised on the na­tional stage as the town landed sec­ond place in Scot­land at the Great British High Street Awards.

Sheila Barker said: “I love Prest­wick, es­pe­cially all the eat­ing places.”

Mau­reen Rayner com­mented: “Prest­wick is a great town. Lovely to see it still has small re­tail shops, makes it stand out from the other towns. Well done - still a bit of pride.”

Julie Pringle said: “Prest­wick is full of small in­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers so this is re­ally good news for them.

“Not a glut of pound shops and char­ity shops like Ayr has - Ayr could do with learn­ing a bit from Prest­wick.”

San­dra McLean added: “It’s a lovely wee town.”

De­tec­tives ap­pealed af­ter an as­sault with in­tent to rob on 81- yearold Dr Ray No­ble at his in Park Cir­cus in Ayr on Fri­day.

It is the lat­est in a vi­o­lent crime wave to hit Ayr.

Chris­tine McIl­wraith said: “I don’t sup­pose any CCTV would be work­ing?

“With the lack of po­lice pres­ence now a days it would be a good idea to have more work­ing CCTV around town.”
