Recently, a major new community research and consultation project was launched in Maybole. Around 30 people representing the local Community Council and main services in the town came together to in the Town Hall to launch the initiative which is being supported by South Ayrshire Council, Maybole Community Council and NHS Ayrshire & Arran. The focus of the consultation exercise is on finding out more about the ‘assets’ of Maybole. In other words, anyone and anything that is important in making Maybole a great place to live, work and visit. It is intended that findings of the consultation will feed directly into service plans for the town.

Work on the project is being led by Glasgow-based research organisation, the Social Value Lab. Jonathan Coburn, Director of the Lab commented: “This is a consultation project that will be delivered by Maybole residents, for Maybole residents. Over the coming months we will be helping a team of community facilitators to gather the views and opinions of anyone and everyone that lives locally.” Jonathan continued, “Work is already underway to recruit a team of local volunteers to assist in the survey work, with a fee of up to £200 available to cover time and expenses. All that is required is local knowledge, basic confidence, good communication skills. Training will be provided.

To find out more about the project you can go online to or join in the discussion at the ‘Maybole Community Assets’ Facebook page. To sign up to work on the project (and earn a bit of much needed money after the Xmas break) you can email Jacqui at
