Make your pledge for our "Vow to WOW"
The regeneration of Kilmarnock Town Centre is not just the responsibility of big business and organisations. It's something everyone can be involved in and we all have a part to play in making the town successful, vibrant and lively.
Kilmarnock has lots of enthusiastic organisations already working hard, from social enterprises to its independent businesses but its major asset is its people. As a Council, we recognise that we cannot help the town centre fulfil its potential by ourselves. This is why we're committed to a community-led approach which ensures people are at the heart of its regeneration strategy.
How can I help?
We need your help, lending us some of your skills, talent, effort, daring and passion for Kilmarnock to bring the "WOW" to Kilmarnock Town Centre. We want you to think of something you can promise to do to make life in the Town Centre more attractive, safe and vibrant and pledge to do that.
