GALA queens are often asked to perform unusual tasks in the role as young civic leaders. And Maybole's Nicole Currie is no exception. She was given the honour of cutting the ribbon to officially open the town's newest landmark. The pretty youngster opened Ayrshire Housing's distinctive development in St Cuthbert's Street on Friday. Nicole presented first tenant Moira Auld with the keys to her new home in the 1.7 million development. The triangular block reflects the form of the long-since demolished shoe factory which once dominated the site next to Maybole Castle and Carnegie Library. The scheme was designed by Wren Rutherford ASL and built by

Drongan based Hope Homes. The complex consists of a mixture of two-storey town houses and three-storey maisonette blocks. Margaret Scott, chairwoman of Ayrshire Housing, commented: "This scheme provides much needed rented housing for both families and the elderly. "We are pleased by the positive response of the local community to this landmark development." Ayrshire Post July 2003.

A DRAMATIC new feature has emerged on what was once an eyesore site in Maybole. The derelict former St Cuthbert’s shoe factory has become desirable town centre flats in a £1.7million development. Tenants will be moving into the 23 homes in the next month or two. They are being built by Hope Homes for Carrick Housing Association, now part of Ayrshire Housing. (Ayrshire Post April 25th 2003)
