GIRVAN Rotary Club donated a generous sum of £2200 to the brand new leisure facility -The Quay Zone.

Members of the club were given a private visit to the brand new attraction, by the General Manager Mr Peter Linton.

The visit to the Quayzone was to allow the Rotary club to hand over £2200, which was to enable Peter and his team to purchase a top of the range information display television and a custom built Lifeguard’s chair. 

This cash donation is considerable considering that Girvan Rotary membership is around 15 persons.

The club were shown the new pool, the gymnasium, the huge very impressive kids soft play area, the activity area, and the boiler house and associated equipment. 

Girvan Rotarians are very aware of the huge amount of work many individuals put into the dream of having a new pool for Girvan and after the walk round they were delighted with what they saw, and what had been achieved.

Alistair Wallace, of Girvan Rotary, said: “As we left, it was noticeable how touched we all were at the magnificent views of Girvan the centre exposes, as you look through its windows.

“The ambitious project to deliver a bright, modern leisure and community centre for the people of Girvan and South Carrick is now nearing completion, thanks to South Ayrshire Council. 

“With the exterior now largely complete, contractors are in the process of fitting-out the interior of this flagship project ahead of its official opening.”

The Quay Zone is be operated by South Carrick Community Leisure (SCCL) and hopes to transform leisure and community facilities, with a 25m swimming pool, soft play area, superb fitness gym, flexible multi-purpose studio/community space, changing facilities and café.

The facility opened its doors to the public on April, 27. As a charitable organisation SCCL need the on-going support of the South Carrick community, supporters and visitors to the area.
