In Memory of Alan Murray

In 2015 the Carrick Centre lost one of its founder members and prime instigators with the passing of Alan Murray. Alan was instrumental in setting up the Carrick Centre and in securing the funding needed to equip and operate the Centre, so generously leased to us by Maybole Parish Church. Under his leadership the Centre progressed to become the hub of community life here in Maybole. The community owes him a lasting debt, and we shall not see his like again.
