A COMMUNITY representative from Catrine has been appointed as a voluntary Community Advisory Board member for the Institute for Community Studies.

The group are now doing an initial survey to find out views within the community.

The mission of the study is to include the voices and improve and inform the efforts of all people working in and with their communities across the UK.

They are interested in what matters to communities. This might be what matters to a community as a physical place or area where people live, including facilities and amenities, culture and activities, or safe and green spaces.

Any resident of East Ayrshire, over the age of 16 can complete the survey.

It takes just a few minutes and can be completed by following this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ICS_Community_Survey
