2018 was quite the year for the volunteers of Cumnock Juniors Community Enterprise (CJCE).

The group picked up a Queen's Award for Voluntary Service and an SFA Quality Mark Platinum Legacy Award before being named East Ayrshire's Club of the Year.

Townhead Community Sports Hub has regularly hosted rugby and football camps for kids of all ages and classes for netball, dance and gymnastics have proven popular at other venues in the community.

There have also been regular All Ability Sports sessions and CJCE also support the Things Tae Dae group. Club development officer Derek King hailed it as an stunning year.

He said: "What an incredible year for Cumnock Juniors Community Enterprise, all of which couldn't have been done without a thriving and engaged community, passionate partnerships and amazing volunteers.

"It has been a busy time at Townhead Community Sports Hub, in local schools and in the local community building dynamic relations through communication, interaction and involvement.

"CJCE have worked in partnership with local groups including Vibrant Communities, Active Schools, East Ayrshire Council and Cumnock Action Plan Group.

"A Leadership Academy Programme was developed involving S4-S6 pupils from Cumnock Academy. The pupils are being supported to gain nationally recognised sports coaching awards as well as gaining volunteering experience.

"CJCE have also been the local flagbearers for the Climate Challenge Fund promoting projects that deal with lowering carbon emissions.

"Townhead has even held its own Dog Show this year with the success now ensuring that it will now be an annual event.

"The great work going on has been recognised locally and nationally with three major achievements this year that will probably never be repeated.

"So much has happened and CJCE would like to thank you for being with us every step of the way and hope to see you all continue to be involved in 2019."
