The Role of the Troon Community Council
Community Councils are voluntary bodies which exist within a statutory framework and which have been granted statutory rights of consultation. The general purpose of the Troon Community Council is to ascertain, co-ordinate and express the wider views of the entire community within its boundaries. Community Councils will seek to represent and include all sections of their communities, regardless of age, gender, ability, ethnic origin, political or religious beliefs, or sexual orientation. They can complement the role of the local authority but are not part of local government.
Troon Gala Day is being held this year on June 24th 2017 on the grassy embankment adjacent to the beach promenade. The gala Queen and Princess will be led to the event by Troon’s award winning BB pipe band. This year’s Citizen of the Year Sheila Cameron will crown the gala Queen and Princess at 1pm to open the gala day which will run until 4pm. A number of stalls, from local businesses and charities will offer goods, Bric a brac, raffles and tombolas, and a sandcastle competition will be held at the beach nearby.
