Cumnock and Doon Valley residents have up to November 30 to apply for a Help to buy ISA.

If you are a first-time buyer, over 16 years of age and thinking about saving for a mortgage you are eligible to apply for a help to buy scheme.

The government will add 25 per cent on top of what ever you save, with a maximum of £3000.

East Ayrshire residents are reminded that there is less than a month left to open a new account.
