Doors Open Day throughout Ayrshire is co-ordinated by volunteers from Kyle and Carrick Civic Society, who were pioneers with Glasgow in 1990, so this is our 29th!  There will be 60 venues taking part, including Skelmorlie Secret Bunker Royal Observer Corps underground monitoring post and Skelmorlie & Wemyss Bay Parish Church, North Ayrshire; the private Telephone Museum at Darvel and The Club founded 1884 in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire; and the Police Cells below Ayr Town Hall and Ayr Sheriff and JP Court where a mini mock trial is planned, South Ayrshire.


New this year is the cluster of 12 venues in Scotland’s Craft Town, West Kilbride, which should prove popular as all the family could enjoy the whole day there on Saturday 8th taking in the Museum in the Village Hall, activities for young people in the Community Centre and the Library, plus the Barony Centre and eight craft studios!


Funding has kindly been provided by North Ayrshire Council, South Ayrshire Council, the Energy Saving Trust and Ayrshire Housing.


The printed brochure will be available from libraries throughout the county.
