“No to Congestion – Yes to Bypass” - The “When?” Campaign for a Start Date for Maybole Bypass

Maybole Community Council is holding an event on Saturday March 26th from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon, in Maybole Town Hall, to support the long-running campaign to secure a date on which work will start on a much needed Bypass for Maybole. The event is open to everyone in the community and Community Council members are asked to come along if they possibly can and to help to publicise the event as widely as possible in the community by informing friends, family, colleagues etc.

Prospective candidates for the Scottish Parliament elections in May are being invited and it is hoped that they will be able to attend to gain first hand experience of the detrimental impact that the continued delay in providing a bypass is having on the town and its people. Local councillors and other interested parties are also being invited.

As part of the continuing campaign for a bypass, the Community Council organised a competition in which local school children were invited to design a slogan which will be used on publicity materials. The winning entry “No to Congestion, Yes to By-Pass” was produced by Rory Galloway, a primary 7 pupil at Gardenrose Primary School, and Rory will be presented with his prize, an i-pod nano, at 11.00am. Rory’s slogan already features on car stickers which will be available at the event.

Tea and coffee will be available and there will also be a display of materials which have been used to highlight the need for a bypass.
