ROZELLE House Museum and Galleries in Ayr has been described as a building which requires ‘tender loving care’.

The issue was brought up at a recent public meeting by a community councillor of Fort, Seafield and Wallacetown, who described the House as ‘looking extremely sad, with broken gutters and windows which need cleaned’.

Cllr Kirsty Darwent said: “This question has been asked.”

Cllr Bill Grant continued: “I will look into that. This issue was brought to our attention about 14 months ago. It is an A listed building.You are right it needs done because it is a great property.

“It is required much needed attention and you will see changes to it next year.”

Chairman Norman McLean, said: “I am sure that the ‘Friends of Rozelle’ would be delighted to here that.”

The new exhibition ‘Inspiring Landscapes’ exploring the life and times of WWI Official Artist, Sir Muirhead Bone, is open at Rozelle House Museum and Galleries,

This is supported by funding from Museums Galleries Scotland which has involved local people researching the life and times of Sir Muirhead Bone, and creating Fine Art Prints inspired by the South Ayrshire landscape.

The exhibition confirms the role this part of the world played as Bone developed his craft, revealing a story of international and local significance. 

In the coming months free, print making taster workshops throughout the exhibition will take place on Saturday afternoons from 1pm until 4.30pm.

The dates are November 26, December 10 and January 21, 2017.

It is not yet clear when work on the property will take place and to what extent but it is clear from the community that a high profile building like this one needs to be taken care of.
