Another Success Story


Meet our Chair Person         Marguerite      Hunter Blair

A centre at the hub of its local community has elected a woman to run the Ayrshire charity for the first time in its history.

As the first woman chair in the centre’s nine year history, she said:

“ I am delighted to be the new Chair of The Carrick Centre Board of Directors. These are challenging times and I look forward to building on the success of my predecessors.

“This is a huge honour and I look forward to continuing the amazing work of my predecessors in supporting the staff, volunteers and communities of North Carrick.”

“I welcome the opportunity to work more closely with the Centre Team to advance the great work carried out to support the communities of North Carrick.”

Lady Hunter Blair, who is also chief executive of the charity Play Scotland- describing itself as leading, campaigning and planning for a more playful Scotland- has been a director at the centre since July 2016.


An enthusiast for charities large and small, the mother of five and new grandmother said: “The job satisfaction of working in  a charity is wonderful because we really do make a difference.

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.
