Carrick Academy Race Night

Carrick Academy are having a race night and are keen to invite people in the local community, parents and former pupils! Please see all info on the poster! 🐎


Our group is in desperate need for new Cub and Scout Leaders.
For the past 8 years Len and Jackie have tried (and failed 🤣) to retire. This has been due to the lack of new Leaders.
Over these years we’ve had people start their training, however for various reasons it has always fell through…..
However, Len and Jackie have finally made the decision to officially retire next week, Monday the 12th of September. This leaves me as the only Leader in the group, and it is simply too much for me to organise and run all three Sections by myself.
This means that if we don’t get any new Leaders the Cub and Scout Sections will have to unfortunately close.
All the Cub and Scout parents/guardians will be kept up to date with the forthcoming changes.
Please note that is will be NO CHANGES to the Beaver Section. I will continue to run the Beavers along with my helper.
All the necessary training is provided with no cost to yourself.
You’ll receive all the help and guidance that is needed to become a Leader.You don’t have to have a Scouting background.
If anyone would be interested in becoming a Leader or knows of anyone please contact me.
Thank you,
Iona Barrie
Maybole Beaver Leader 😊

Friday 21st Oct Downton Abbey-A New Era – From award-winning creator Julian Fellowes comes the motion picture event DOWNTON ABBEY: A NEW ERA.

Cert PG


Fri 18th Nov Top Gun Maverick – If you loved the original — or enjoy some good old-school action — you need to speed your way to a screening of Top Gun: Maverick . After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose”. Cert 12A

Fri 16th Dec The Railway Children Return Inspired by one of the most beloved British family films of all time, RAILWAY CHILDREN is an enchanting, moving, and heart-warming adventure for a new generation. 1944 — As life in Britain’s cities becomes increasingly perilous, three evacuee children — Lily (Beau Gadsdon), Pattie (Eden Hamilton) and Ted (Zac Cudby) Watts — are sent by their mother from Salford to the Yorkshire village of Oakworth. There to meet them on the train station platform are Bobbie Waterbury (Jenny Agutter, reprising her iconic role in the original film), her daughter, Annie , and grandson Thomas. Cert PG
