Ditch the Dirt Campaign Local Survey 1 - Results

Picture 1

Both photographs were taken on Tuesday morning.  Pic 1 was taken near Carzield.

Picture 2

Pic 2  was taken in the park, where we found over 20 uncollected poos!  In fact, about as many in the park as in the rest of the Kirkton area!  Most of these are on the bank between the houses and the new play equipment. 

If people want to report this, they can get in touch with the Community Safety Team

Superfast Broadband

At the start of this year we were told to expect Superfast Broadband to reach us by June.June has come and gone, as have July and August. In a test this weekend of broadband speeds in random areas the results show:-

      Glasgow Saturday - 14.8 Mb/second
·         Darvel Ayrshire Saturday  - 12.7 Mb/second
·         Kirkton Saturday - 0.6 Mb/second

·         Kirkton Tuesday - 0.36 Mb/second

     We are hardly galloping forward in the 21st Century.   
     Apparently the engineer has informed us in an oblique way that there are
                      "A number of significant engineering challenges"

       Whatever that means!

if     If you feel this is an unsatisfactory answer to our question as to why we have still not  got our Superfast Broadband please send your comments to Neil Munro
