That this House congratulates the Café at the Station at Saltcoats Railway Station on winning the impressive accolade of Best Café in Ayrshire at the Ayrshire Business Awards; applauds this well-deserved tribute to owner Susan Barbour, her daughter, Amy Barbour and cook, Helen Crawford for their incredible determination and drive, making their café not just a place for a good cup of coffee, but also as a hub for the local community in Saltcoats; notes that the Café at the Station is more than just a café, with its support for the local community through sponsorship of football teams, delivering shopping or opening the café to serve Christmas dinner free of charge to those who would otherwise spend Christmas Day alone; and recognises that community involvement is very important to the team in this cafe and understands they will continue to seek to improve the lives of local people with their kindness and commitment to the good people of Saltcoats.
