Pinwherry and Pinmore Community Development Trust are pleased to announce that we now officially own the former Pinwherry Primary School.

We've got the keys to Pinwherry School!

We received notification from South Ayrshire Council that the Community Asset Transfer application for the school site was approved in January 2021, in addition to funding for the essential repairs to both buildings from the Advancing Community Assets Fund. Our solicitors have now completed the transaction and we have got the keys!

We received funding from the Scottish Land Fund for the purchase price of the school and also some funding from Pinwherry and Pinmore Community Council towards some of the legal fees, architect fees and an initial contribution towards the refurbishment costs. Thank you to our funders!

A community update newsletter will be delivered to every household in the parish and will be available online in the next couple of weeks.
