The Carrick Community Food Garden (CCFG) invites you to discover the joy of growing fruit and vegetables, building and creating with members of your community garden, where everyone shares the work and the harvest.

At CCFG we are very flexible, you can drop in to learn more and see what it's like before you decide to contribute your time and energy.
Established in 1856 the Sea Cadets were created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the unit building.
Today, 14,000 young people based in 400 units in towns, cities and ports across the UK are challenging themselves and developing new skills, like sailing, boating and rock climbing - supported by 9,000 volunteers.
At Ayr, we love helping young people launch well in today’s world. Watching cadets grow into better versions of themselves is what makes volunteering for this charity so special. Volunteering with Sea Cadets has so many benefits. Including giving back to the community, helping young people grow into adults and gaining qualifications to teach different courses we have to offer. We’re always looking for people to join us! Whether it’s becoming a trained instructor or just lending a helping hand, your help is always welcome! You don’t need to have a background in the navy or in water sports, you just need to have a positive attitude!

Volunteering at parkrun
Volunteering at parkrun is an opportunity to get outside, make new friends, have fun, learn new skills and to be a valuable part of your local community. We are always looking for new volunteers. This page explains how to get involved.
How to get involved
Finding out about Prestwick Oval junior parkrun volunteering opportunities couldn't be easier. Simply open a recent parkrun newsletter, results email or volunteer email, click on 'manage my profile', then 'email options', then select the events you'd like to hear from and click 'save opt-in events list'. You will then receive regular emails from those events letting you know all about their volunteering opportunities.
Future volunteer roster
You can see an event's future volunteer roster via their specific future roster page. To get in touch with the event directly, just send an email to email@example.com
What would I do at the Event?
First, and most importantly, we never ask anybody to do anything they're not comfortable with. If you don't want a particular task, please let us know and we will happily give you an alternative job. Nevertheless, none of our tasks are too stressful. You could be organising the finish funnel, operating the timer, or scanning barcodes using the simple Virtual Volunteer app. If you really want to do something in particular, please let us know and we'll see what we can do.
Remember as a volunteer you are the eyes and ears of parkrun. If you have any concerns that arise at a parkrun event, whether involving children or adults, you should discuss those concerns with the Run Director on the day, as soon as possible thereafter or email Head Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The core team
Prestwick Oval junior parkrun happens largely because of our fantastic volunteers. The weekly team of volunteers are led by a small group of parkrun enthusiasts who form what we call the 'core team': They make sure the event is setup and packed away each week, the results published, the tokens resorted, event reports written and so much more.
Event Director - Jamie Marshall-Watt & Paul Deas
We're very grateful to the help provided by everybody, both now and in the past, who've helped make Prestwick Oval junior parkrun happen.
