Participatory Budgeting Event

The Ancient Society of Kilwinning Archers has been successful in obtaining a stall at the Participatory Budgeting event.

This will be held at the Ayrshire College Kilwinning Campus between 10:30 – 1:00 pm on Saturday 3rd March.

We are trying to get the funds to pay for the reinforcement of the Silver Arrow bow limbs.

We will have the Silver Arrow on Display together with the ‘Pop-up’ banners used at the John Crichton event.

The way this works is that we are trying to get Votes for Our Project so it is essential that as many members/family/friends as you can persuade to come and vote for us. They can also get a close up view of the Silver Arrow as well and find out about the more interesting ones.

This is the last thing that the Silver Arrow requires for the foreseeable future and if we are successful it will enable us to spread the old medals out more on the bow which will make them much easier to see.

Stuart Wilson

President.
