Local primary schools were treated to a delivery of pumpkins ahead of Hallowe’en thanks to a hardworking community partnership.

Some 150 pumpkins were donated to Bellsbank and Dalmellington primary schools thanks to Shire Housing Association, C.A.N.I .in the community, The Zone Initiative and Morrison’s Ayr.

The pumpkins were distributed to the primary school kids in the area as well as those who attend the youth club to mark the start of the spooky season.

The groups are looking forward to seeing the kids’ carved pumpkin creations.
