The Ultimate Super Ayr Thread


Recommended Posts

The new council are triumphantly hailing the cancellation of the new leisure centre as saving a fortune. 
 
Aye, fair enough but you have just left 3/4 of Ayr high street derelict and the other quarter a shitehole with now no plan to improve it. 
Apparently they are putting some of the money into the citadel, I haven't been in the place since I moved out of ayr as a kid in 1990 and I bet its not changed much but putting money in won't change its out of the high street location, the new thing proposed at the Kyle center would have brought folk into the town.

The flumes were removed. There was some sort of urban myth that someone died on one of them.

Should turn it into council offices to replace Burns House but seems all this working from home pish means the council don't need to replace the office space lost.

Sign of the times tbh.

Online shopping, streaming services and big supermarkets have killed the High Street.

High Street has taking a hit from online shopping, but if you compare the likes of Dumfries, Stirling and similar other towns, Ayr has taking a battering.

I've never been to Dumfries. They say that place is cursed.

Last time I was in Stirling, my trousers got insulted so I haven't been back.

This applies everywhere in the world. Ayr's decline from a busy and vibrant high street to a ghost town in 20 years is unique. Every Tory in Ayr should be escorted into the sea.

TBH The Citadel's best days are behind it. A new leisure centre in the town centre would have been great.

The Citadel in its post-Ayr-Baths configuration is less than 30 years old. That it's considered no longer fit for purpose because the worst council in the universe found it difficult to park their Range Rovers would be considered the most appalling mismanagement imaginable if not for what happened to Ayr Hospital.

The rot set in well before I left, which was in 2015. Admittedly nothing since helped to halt the decline but the town was put to the sword by the Tories.

Wasn’t that the Magnum in Irvine?
