MUIRKIRK residents are being invited to decide how £20,000 should be spent in the area.

East Ayrshire Council Housing Services have made £20,000 available in the area to undertake Housing Environmental Projects, such as replacing fencing, refurbish communal areas.

The decisions will be made through a Participatory Budgeting process where residents will be able to make proposals for how the money should be spent as well as vote.

A meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 28 in the community centre at 6pm where anyone interested can get involved.
