THE latest in a long-line of community initiatives by the Ardrossan Music Experience came to an end last week.

An eight-week course on songwriting in the Ardrossan Civic Centre, with musicians JJ Gilmour and Colin Kennedy, was a big success with people from all over North Ayrshire coming to take part.

Peter McNamara, organiser of the Experience, said: “It was really well attended and everyone loved taking part. We had a great mix of people and JJ and Colin were brilliant over the eight-weeks.”
