Nestling in the Southern Uplands, Barr is one of Ayrshire’s prettiest villages. Ayrshire Housing is pleased to support the village’s community shop. Volunteers including Ayrshire Housing tenants have used a grant from the association to create a lovely tearoom at the front of the shop.
Ayrshire Housing tenant Board member Kenny George said “Ayrshire Housing looks to help community initiatives such as this. It’s great to see the work of so many villagers in developing this co-operatively run shop and tearoom. It very much complements the aims of the housing association as a community and tenant led organisation”.
The tearoom is a now a popular stop-off for touring cyclists with its outdoor seating. Each Tuesday, it holds a seniors’ get together over tea and coffee, and excellent home baking. It’s worth a visit for the scones, Victoria sponge, almond biscotti and other delights!
