South Ayrshire Council confirms some services will be suspended on day of funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
As a mark of respect on the day of the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, some of our services will be temporarily suspended.
Many of our services were already scheduled to be closed due to the pre-arranged local public holiday, however the following services will now also not operate on Monday 19 September 2022:
- All Sport and Leisure services (including our golf courses);
- Rozelle House Museum and Galleries;
- The Maclaurin Art Gallery.
These services will resume as normal on Tuesday 20 September.
Arrangements are in place to ensure that all essential Health and Social Care activities continue on Monday 19 September.
Waste Management collections will not be affected and will continue to operate as normal on Monday 19 September.
The Book of Remembrance at Ayr Crematorium will be available from 10:00am until 1:00pm.
Leader of South Ayrshire Council, Councillor Martin Dowey said: "Following the sad passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, I know people across South Ayrshire, including many of our staff, will want to pay their respects and take time to reflect on a lifetime of service on the day of our late monarch's funeral.
"While some of our non-essential services were already scheduled to be closed due to the pre-arranged public holiday, we have taken the decision to suspend further services on Monday 19 September. This is as both a mark of respect and to allow those who wish to do so, time to mourn the loss of our longest serving sovereign."
