Community involvement at Spier’s

In 2008 Beith Community Council organised a Spier’s School grounds tidy up and improvements morning. Litter was removed and an old path was cleared to allow better access to the site for local people and visitors to the area. Gateside Primary school have planted trees and bulbs donated by the community and Eglinton Country Park. Ardrossan Academy pupils have opened up new paths through the woods and the grounds.

The ‘Youth Making Beith Better’ group have carried out path maintenance and other grounds improvements works at Spier’s through their John Muir Award work. Ken Stewart of Dalry brings Wesley, his Clydesdale horse, to extract logs from the woodlands, providing a spectacle for visitors and removing fallen timber with minimal damage to te habitats. Beith Out of School Care have produced publicity posters for the site. Geilsland School is involved in several projects within the parklands.
