Carrick is very much a rural district with the main towns being Girvan, a fishing port, with numerous other industries around it and Maybole, a small industrial town.
Carrick Scouts have been putting their hand to bridge building during a camp at Straiton when they built this structure across the River Girvan.
Carrick Beaver Scouts held a fun day at Crosshill and these are some of the pictures from that day.
Beaver Scouts from Girvan, Dailly, Crosshill, Kirkmichael and Maybole gathered at Dailly Activity Centre on Tuesday 7 March for a Fun Night. Organised by Dailly Beaver Leader, Joyce McIntyre, the boys and girls enjoyed the Bouncy Castle, tried their hand at basketball, skittles and Beat The Goalie, experimented with a parachute and finished up with a round of traditional action songs.
This year's event contained something different - a Year 2000 Challenge. Some of the Beaver Colonies are aiming to score 2000 points in four different activities before 31 December in the Scouting Magazine "C2K" Challenge.
The Beavers have challenged their local Councillors to join C2K - a score of 2000 points will earn Honorary Beaver Scout status (or something similar). Never one to shy away from a challenge and always keen to keep close to the Carrick community, local Councillor Paul Torrance scored his first 1000 points by joining the fun and games at Dailly.
30 Cub Scouts from the Carrick District had a great week-end at Barrhill to celebrate the end of the Millennium.
They enjoyed a series of games and challenges linked to the Explorer Badge and with a theme based on the TV programme, The Flintstones.
Over the week-end the learned how to build shelters, planned for a expedition and cooked sausages on an open fire. On the Saturday evening visitors from Barrhill joined in the activities, dodging the dinasaurs bombs when raiding their caves for treasure, and learned some campfire songs.
