That this House congratulates the Newmilns Regeneration Association (NRA) on its recent success in winning the Queens Award for Voluntary Service; notes that the NRA was rewarded for its extensive work in the regeneration of the village of Newmilns; further notes that the group has taken over the village's former Post Office building and is transforming it into a heritage centre, and that it has started up the annual Newmilns Food Festival which is now entering its third year and is the only one of its kind in the whole of Ayrshire; notes and commends the NRA on being the first organisation in Scotland to agree a placemaking plan with the local council in order to further long term regeneration within the village; and wishes the NRA continuing success in its work, in the months and years ahead.
