Ayrshire Housing supports village community shop
Ayrshire Housing is pleased to support the community shop in Barr, one of Ayrshire’s “prettiest villages”.
Volunteers including Ayrshire Housing tenants have used a grant from the association to create a lovely tearoom at the front of the shop.
Ayrshire Housing tenant Board member Kenny George said: “Ayrshire Housing looks to help community initiatives such as this. It’s great to see the work of so many villagers in developing this co-operatively run shop and tearoom. It very much complements the aims of the housing association as a community and tenant led organisation.”
The tearoom is a now a popular stop-off for touring cyclists with its outdoor seating.
Each Tuesday, it holds a seniors’ get together over tea and coffee, and excellent home baking.
It’s worth a visit for the scones, Victoria sponge, almond biscotti and other delights!
