A NEW studio to encourage creativity and improve mental health opened its doors last week – after a bit of help from some Fit Ayrshire Dads.

The Allstar Performing Arts Centre opened its doors on Ailsa Road on schedule on November 18 last week after some of the Fit Ayrshire Dads group lent some muscle to fix up the place.

The Allstar team will now host a Grand Opening ceremony at 7.30pm on Friday, December 6 as a thanks for all the support.

Allstar’s Tammy Harkin said: “We’re opening it up for anybody to come along and look round the place and find out what’s going on. The first week has been fantastic, it’s been amazing, the dance school moved in on Monday and the kids are enjoying the new space.”
