Call To Preserve Spiers School As Rural Retreat

The campaign to preserve the grounds at the former Speirs school outside Beith is gathering momentum.

North Ayrshire Council's Grounds Maintenance Service is preparing a bid for a rural development grant to clear dead wood and reinstate the paths.

A recent survey amongst local people showed that they wanted the ground kept for the community as a rural area where people could walk and enjoy the woodland and local wildlife.

It is hoped that all interested organisations - including Beith and District Community Council, the Beith Cultural and Heritage Society and the Council - can get together at a public meeting early in September.

A 'Friends of Spiers Group' would then identify appropriate areas of work for volunteers.

Local Councillor Jean Highgate said that the Group would, in co-ordination with NAC and the Spiers Trust, seek to promote the development of the grounds.

"It came through very clearly from the survey that people did not want a formal park, just a place with paths and seats where they could walk and enjoy the natural environment," she said.
