The fantastic Greenwood team have been busy volunteering their services at the foodbank in Redburn community hub recently.

Each volunteer has been helping to make food packages, along with other necessities and deliver them to people in the community who may need some extra support during the current circumstances.

Although it can be tough going in the hub some days, everyone continues to work extremely hard to provide for people across North Ayrshire and their efforts have been outstanding.

Well done to all of you, from everyone at the Irvine Times.  


Scotland is in lockdown. Shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We’re not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Irvine Times, and the vital local news service we’ve provided since 1873, is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Irvine Times in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you’re shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.

Thanks – and stay safe.
