and St Cuthberts Church in Maybole marked the 125th anniversary of the
church building's opening in 1878. Special guests were the Bishop of
Galloway, the Rt Rev Maurice Taylor, and former parish priests Canon
Eugene Mathews (1963-67), Monsignor Stephen Kennedy (1983-85), and Fr
Archie Brown (1985-92). Bishop Taylor and the other priests were welcomed
by David Kiltie, chairman of the parish pastoral council. Parish priest Fr
Jim Hayes, in his sermon, spoke of various world events of the late 19th
century to put the opening of the church into context. For the history of
the church corresponds with the restoration of the Catholic hierarchy to
Scotland, more than 300 hundred years after the Reformation. The first
bishop of the new diocese of Galloway in 1878 was the Rt Rev John
McLachlan and his first public official duty was to open the Maybole
church on June 17 of that year.
Taylor, in his talk, said: "This is a good parish with good theology. You
know what a parish community should be, and you have been willing to
become involved in the diocesan plan for embracing the future. You are
being realistic and your preparation will stand you in good stead." The
Bishop added: "Be brave, take risks, launch out in to the deep. We thank
God for the past 125 years and for the vibrant Christian faith which is so
obvious here. "I wish you well, and may God continue to bless you with
faith, hope and love." The Bishop had not been able to attend the recent
First Communion and Confirmation services, and he took the opportunity
during the anniversary Mass to present those children with a small gift
each. He was assisted by Nicole Currie, of St Cuthbert s Primary, who is
this year's Queen of Carrick. A social evening followed the service, with
a video of past events and old photographs on display in the church hall.
Fr Hayes described the celebrations as 'super' and thanked everyone who
had put in so much effort and time with the church, the liturgy and the
CHAIRMAN Peter Mason had a double surprise at
the first annual general meeting of
Maybole Men's Health
Forum. For he was presented with two certificates from South Ayrshire
Sports Council. One is a merit award for Local Services to Sport, and the
other is for Sports Volunteer of the Year. Peter is delighted the forum's
work has been recognised, and said it had come a long way from its first
night, when just four people bothered to turn up. The group has grown to a
membership of more than 30, and its activities include visits to swimming
pools and gyms for aqua aerobics and work-outs. Forum members also enjoy
golf lessons, and the benefits of winter membership of The Ranch health
club. Members have also had health check-ups and an anti-smoking drives.
Peter stressed: "I must thank Jim McDermott for organising the golf
lessons, as well as the night out at Carrick Sports Club. "Also Chic
McDermott for giving up his time to allow us into Carrick Academy during
the Easter break; and the the two school nurses, Sina and Mary, for giving
up their time to give us our health checks. "We have also had valuable
assistance from South Ayrshire Council, Ayrshire and Arran Health Board,
the Lottery Commission and Maybole Community Development Group. "But
special thanks must go to Derek Walker who has worked away in the
background, ensuring that this group has run as smoothly as possible.
"Thanks are also due to Alex Kelly, Dave Whiteman, Jim Shields and Peter
Walker, who were the forerunners in setting up this group." Office-bearers
elected at the annual general meeting are: chairman - P. Mason;
vice-chairman - D. Walker; treasurer - D. Whiteman; secretary - J.
Patterson; events co-ordinator J. McDermott.
PUPILS in P7 classes in Carrick schools
have had a busy and exciting year. And among the challenges set for them
was trying to gain a Junior Achievement Award. They were asked to
take part in a range of pursuits during the school year - covering
service, hobbies, sport and environment. And those who completed all
sections were awarded a certificate and badge to mark their achievement.
This is the third year of the out-of-school programme, with more schools
taking part every year. South Ayrshire director of education Mike McCabe
welcomed pupils, parents and teachers to the presentation ceremony at
Girvan Primary School, and handed over the awards. Meanwhile, Nick Larkin,
head of lifelong Learning, welcomed lveryone to a similar ceremony at Ayr
Town Hall, which some Carrick schools found more convenient to attend.
Both Mr McCabe and Mr Larkin praised the young people for their
commitment. Pupils from Cairn and Crosshill schools received awards.
THEY cooked up a super total of 1,000 at a school's
summer fete and barbecue in Maybole. And the presence of burger-making
volunteers gave the
Primary event plenty of bite! There were plenty of other tasty treats
too, eagerly snapped up from a super baking stall. But there was also the
opportunity to burn off a few unwanted calories, with events like 'beat
the goalie', 'splat the rat' and a bouncy castle. Or you could have a
flutter at the tombola, the treasure map or bottle stall. The event was
organised by the re-christened Gardenrose Parent-Teacher Association
(formerly just a Parents' Association). New head Mrs Mary Scott herself
suggested the change, and aims to forge even closer links between the
parents and staff. The fete and barbecue was certainly proof, if any were
needed, of what can be achieved when everyone pulls together.
THE Jean Falconer Literary Competition has
again produced a high standard of writing among Maybole school pupils.
Judges Murray Cook and Ellen Hawkes had the difficult task of picking
winners in a competition which commemorates a founder member of Maybole
Community Council. Jean was a respected journalist, and her community
council colleagues felt a literary competition was an appropriate way to
remember her. Her mother, Nell Samson - also a founder member of the
community council - presented the trophies and certificates at Maybole
Town Hall. See also
photos from last years 2002 competition.

Prize-winners, parents and teachers were welcomed by David Kiltie,
chairman of Maybole Community Council, who congratulated the successful
pupils and thanked all who entered. Mr Kiltie told the company at the
prize-giving ceremony: "The competition has been held annually for 15
years now and our judges have consistently praised the high standard of
writing - even if this has made their decisions very difficult! "We are
grateful for the continued support of all our local schools and delighted
that the competition is now part of Carrick Academy's curriculum. "The
contributions from Cairn, Gardenrose and St Cuthbert's primary schools are
also very much appreciated. Our thanks go to all teachers who assist with
this." Mr Kiltie said the late Jean Falconer played a key role in Maybole
Community Council following its formation in 1977. When she sadly died,
members wanted to remember her in some way and it was felt that a literary
competition would be the most suitable gesture.
CARRICK Sports Club invited visiting American couple Rich and Elaine
Pettit to present the prizes at the 28th annual dance. Rich, of course
traces his origins to Maybole, and helps mastermind the town's
award-winning website from his home in Clearwater, Florida. Prizes went
to: darts - Gordon Campbell, runner-up - Harvey Campbell; snooker - David
Kirkwood, r-up - Ian Hewitt; dominoes - David Kirkwood, r-up - Norman
McIntyre; table tennis - David Kiltie, r-up Ian Hewitt. Club secretary
Bill McCubbin thanked everyone who helped make it another successful year
for the club. And he was delighted to welcome visitors who had done so
much for Maybole - from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Said Bill:
"We are grateful to Rich for being instrumental in putting our town on the
world map and hope that he and his family have enjoyed their holiday here.
They will always be welcome here."
reminisced about the year the club opened - 1975. Rhinestone Cowboy was a
hit record for Glen Campbell, while Jaws was the year's movie blockbuster.
Margaret Thatcher became leader of the Conservative Party, President
Gerald Ford escaped two assassination attempts in 17 days, Tiger Woods was
born, and the first home computers went on sale in the USA! On TV we were
watching Starsky and Hutch, Kojak and the Six Million Dollar Man. Bill
pointed out: "Here in Maybole, the Co-op had all but gone, leaving a lot
of empty shops in the town. "The previous year Tom Cook persuaded the
Carrick Speakers Club (which was an offshoot of the American Toastmasters)
that a social club was required in the town. The rest, as they, say is
Speakers Club, along with others in the community who had faith in the
project together with the Brewers, bought the Co-op hardware store,
converted it, added to it and improved it through the 28 years since.
"Improvements are still ongoing. We are presently at work in the loft to
provide keep fit facilities for the members. "All of this has been to the
credit of the members of this club who have sustained it through the
REDBRAE School for disruptive pupils has closed
its doors - but MSPs hope it can re-open, under a new management
structure. Tory Phil Gallie received cross-party support from the SNP and
SSP when he raised the Maybole school's closure in the Scottish
Parliament. He said the small independent school had provided 'an
unsurpassed service' to education authorities in Ayrshire for 20 years.
And Mr Gallie said it was 'ironic' that Redbrae was closing - just as the
Scottish Executive recognised that mainstream education couldn't always
cope with disruptive pupils. He later told the Post: "I am pleased to hear
that South Ayrshire Council are reputed to be in continued dialogue on the
matter. "But it is strange that teachers, care workers and ancillary staff
appear to have their employment terminated as the holidays begin." The
Redbrae school building is owned by South Ayrshire Council, who leased it
out to independent operator Dr Robin Dalrymple. And pupils themselves
wrote to the Scottish Executive, pleading a case for Redbrae because of
the benefits they are gaining. Deputy education minister Euan Robson told
Mr Gallie in last Wednesday's debate: "I understand the council (South
Ayrshire) has set up a feasibility group to consider options for
continuing to use the building as a school, possibly independently-run."
The SNP's Adam Ingram says this is likely to be in a 'slimmed down'
structure, possibly involving Quarriers.
WHEN is a bowler a Singer too? When his name is Drew
Hearton and he brings his team to Maybole! And the competition wasn't over
till Drew's 'Singers' won by a single shot at the
Bowling Club. Drew, formerly from Maybole, now plays at the Singer
Bowling Club in Clydebank. But there's nothing he likes better than coming
back to his old stamping ground for a good day out. And the Invitation
Rinks tournament held by Maybole Memorial Park was certainly that. There
were some great matches, with more than 20 teams taking part, and
ultimately it came down to Singers versus Girvan in the final. The Girvan
lads fought all the way in an epic final, but Singers finally sewed it up
by one shot.
CARRICK Academy had the edge in an inter-school golf match with Girvan
Academy. And there are hopes the match can again become an annual event.
Maybole Golf Course was in excellent condition for an encounter played in
warm, sunny weather. Games teed off with a shotgun start, although parents
should be reassured that a whistle was used! The Carrick Schools' Golf
Cup, played on an individual basis, was won by Nick Faulds (Carrick) with
a score of 78(14)64. Nick received the trophy, seven golf balls, a shoe
bag and golf towel. Runner-up was Iain Russell (Carrick) on 80(14)66, with
David Brown (Girvan) 77(10)67 in third place. The Cunningham Cup was
played for in teams of three, with all three Stableford scores counting,
and honours went to the Carrick Academy A team of Nick Faulds, Greg
Rorison and Robert Hutton. Each of the three received three balls and a
golf towel. Runners-up were the Girvan Academy A team of David Brown,
Scott Brown and Steven Stamper, who each received three balls. A number of
special prizes was also up for grabs, and the winners were: Longest drive
at 1st hole - Robert Hutton (Carrick), shoe bag, three balls; nearest 3rd
hole - Nick Faulds (Carrick), golf glove, three balls; nearest 9th hole -
David Heron (Girvan), golf umbrella and three balls. Nick Faulds
undoubtedly produced the day's outstanding performance, with a net score
of 64, 40 Stableford points - and a major share of the prizes. Both
schools thanked James Byers of Bickets, Kilmarnock, and Ian Milroy of
Girvan for donating the impressive array of prizes.
SUSAN Whiteman, chairman of
organisers Maybole Community Association, has thanked her committee and
others who helped make the day a success. People like the police for
traffic control, and the Men's Health Forum for helping to pitch the
tents. Susan adds: "I would also like to thank those in the community who
took part in the parade and who turned out to watch. "If anyone has any
ideas about how they could improve the gala, or if anyone in the community
would like to help organise the event, then they can contact me. "I also
would like to Gavin Loch (Mr Shift It) and B and C Garden Services for
judging the garden competition, South Ayrshire Council, plus the
politicians for their help on the day."
TINY Tots Playgroup in Maybole has bid farewell to playleader Rosemary
Eccles - and the wee ones were sad to see her go. Rosemary has been a
mainstay of the playgroup for 17 years, and has seen hundreds of Maybole
kids grow up. But she now aims to spend more time with her own
grandchildren, although she will be sorely missed at Tiny Tots.
Presentations were made to Rosemary on her last day at the playgroup,
which meets in Carrick Academy's community wing. The group re-starts after
the school holidays, and tots aged two and over are welcome. Our picture
shows Rosemary on her final day - and the children's expressions clearly
show she will be missed.
50 YEARS AGO - A Maybole couple celebrated their
diamond wedding anniversary on Coronation Day. Mr and Mrs James Conkie,
aged 87 and 84, of 28 Welltrees Street, also watched television for the
first time, when they saw the Coronation broadcast at the home of their
AGO - The G. and S.W. Railway Company's passenger steamer 'Juno' called at
Girvan on Saturday evening, and after landing and taking aboard
passengers, went a trip round Ailsa
CARRICK Academy's annual prize-giving was held in the Town Hall, with
guest speaker Mr Brian McInroy handing over the prizes. Mr McInroy, who is
head of educational attainment in South Ayrshire, is himself a former
pupil of the school. And he said the school motto 'Superbe Gerimus' - Wear
it With Pride - remained as valid now as in previous generations. Mr
McInroy said Scots were respected the world over for their work ethic, and
the concept of lifelong learning can further enhance our reputation. For
he stressed that education was no longer a formal pursuit, limited to
schools and colleges, but was a lifetime's occupation. The ceremony was
chaired by Carrick Academy's depute head, Mrs Isabel Johnstone, and a
report was given on the school year by rector Mr Rodger Stewart, who also
thanked prize sponsors. The school band's musical contributions to the
evening included exhilirating performances of the 'Chariots of Fire'
theme, as well as 'I Dreamed a Dream' and 'Go Go Joseph'.
