Ayr ice rink has had major improvements over the summer. Around £240,000 has been invested in a new floor, lighting and freezing plant, with sportscotland providing some £103,000 of this sum. A lift, to facilitate wheelchair access, is to be installed soon. In the photo above, that's Kate Mathews, representing sportscotland, at the opening last week. Provost Winnie Sloan cut the tape.
