A TROON street was brightened up to show support to the NHS and key workers on the frontline of coronavirus.

On what would have been gala weekend in Muirhead, Central Avenue was decorated with balloons and bunting by kind residents who are asking others to do the same.

A ‘Thank You’ board has been set up outside the Activity Centre to support to all keyworkers, with messages of support attached.

Frances Carson of the Muirhead Tennants and Residents Association told the Advertiser: “This is a thank you from all of Troon to all the heroic workers out there. A special thanks to Mrs Rose Agnews, Mr and Mrs Bonelli and Ryan Carson.”


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 Ayr Advertiser, and the vital local news service we've provided since 1803, is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Ayr Advertiser 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.
