HERE is a peek at one of the deckchairs set to be shown off to Ardrossan residents at an open day on Saturday, August 14.

The Ardrossan Community Trust will be sharing their proposed plans for the South Beach Promenade at the engagement day.

The all day event will see the Trust’s volunteers share their vision for the promenade including the giant playpark that will stretch from one end of South Beach to the current play park.

The volunteers will be out and about asking residents for their input into the design of the play area by outlining their plans on chalk along the grass.

They will also be discussing their hopes to have a small coffee shop and retail unit at South Beach next to the toilet block.

And the Trust will also be sharing a peek at some of the 100 bespoke deckchairs that will be made available for residents and visitors to use at South Beach.

On the day, Ardrossan Community Sports Hub will be running family friendly bootcamps on the promenade at noon and 2.30pm.

Ardrossan Community Trust Chairman Scott Mould said: “Part of our plans for the South Beach Promenade is to create a hub with a coffee shop, toilets, storage for the 100 deckchairs and our wheelies to allow disabled visitors access to the beach.

“Visitors will be able to enjoy a cuppa, hire a wheelie, buy a bucket and spade and this hub will also incorporate the public toilets and be a hub where the community can enjoy all year round.”

This week the volunteers were busy putting an invite through every resident’s door asking them to go along to the open day which runs from 11am until 5pm. If you see a poster round about the area you can also scan te QR code and find out more about the Trust’s vision for South Beach.
