ENTERKINE House will host their Christmas party celebrations and ceilidh night next month.

Fiona Trousdale of the hotel and their lawyer Brian Dunlop appeared before South Ayrshire Council licensing board to allow the events to go ahead despite objections from Annbank residents.

The future of Enterkine’s events has been unclear since the beginning of the year but management are desperate to resolve this. 

Christmas party nights on December 2 and 22 have been cancelled but the events on December 8, 9, 15, 16 and 28 will go ahead as planned.

Speaking at the licensing board, Mr Dunlop said: “These events have been booked since the beginning of the year and the Environmental Health report is the most positive to date.

“We have spent a further £75,000 to sound proof the marquee and employ additional staff to ensure these events are managed properly.”

Mr Sutcliffe who is a resident of Annbank raised the noise concerns in January. 

He said: “This is a very difficult complaint but I am not alone in this, there are a total of eight individual complainers. 

“There have been a number of events since the last board meeting. We have been able to hear Poker Face by Lady Gaga and the Macarena.

“This has been going on for a number of years and I contacted Environmental Health in January. You can hear the DJ and party games late at night. I am not looking forward to hearing that again and I am asking for a solution.”

Mr Dunlop responded: “Enterkine House have done what they can to resolve the situation. I think the objector is clutching at straws.”

Cllr Bob Pollock added: “I am pleased there has been progress.”
Chairman Craig Mackay said: “There has definitely been some progress made.”

Party nights will run until 12am but live music cannot be played after 11pm.
