New Cumnock Development Trust and East Ayrshire Carers Centre are working in partnership to provide support to the community of New Cumnock in meeting the challenges arising from the COVID-19 emergency.

They are now providing a local service to guide people through accessing financial support and more.

Gail Croke is working with the team at NCDT to help access and provide extra support to those in the area and help local people cope with the effects of the ongoing restrictions.

Gail, pictured, can help with form filling, information, signposting and accessing a variety of support from other partners.

Scotland is in lockdown, shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We’re not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Cumnock Chronicle, and the vital local news service we’ve provided since 1901 is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Cumnock Chronicle  in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you’re shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.

Thanks - and stay safe.
