Brodick Hall services need to be retained



Your readers will now be well aware North Ayrshire Council has re-activated the North Ayrshire wide community consultati­on on the future roles of halls, centres and libraries.

The current arrangemen­t with Brodick Hall Community Associatio­n whereby we handle all the bookings and share the letting charges with the council, enables us to subsidise local lets, including the nursery and primary school.

It also means that while the hall committee has paid for additional services within the hall, the council is responsibl­e for its general upkeep.

As a committee we are working closely with the North Ayrshire Federation of Community Organisati­ons in negotiatio­ns with the council, which for us means the services currently delivered relating to Brodick hall, library and mobile library, serving the island community, be upheld.

All of which echoes the consensus of those who attended the packed public meeting in Brodick hall on May 8 2019.

May I ask for a strong response from Arran towards these ends.

Yours, John Sillars, chairman, Brodick Hall Community Associatio­n.
