St. Brigid School now has a paid Crossing Guard, Merv, from the North Dumfries Township at the corner of Northumberland and Broom Street. Students walking along Northumberland, from the Foodland direction to school, are encouraged to cross at the corner with the crossing guard instead of cutting through the Ayr Curling Club Parking Lot and across Broom Street. We are having an increase in vehicle traffic on Broom  Street and it is much safer for pedestrians / walkers when crossing at the corner with the Crossing Guard.
