LARGS golf pro Greig McQueen was shattered after arson and theft at his Routenburn store in 2015

Greig has spoken of having to rebuild his business after losing £10,000 worth of shares to the crime.

Among the stolen items was a photo of Greig with the late Seve Ballesteros and a signed Masters pin flag by Bob Charles.

Elsewhere, the new Largs super campus has been given the go-ahead by councillors.

The North Ayrshire Council cabinet agreed to the proposals, including an increase in investment to almost £52m, an increase of £8m over the estimated cost.

The new development would include a campus building housing Largs Academy, St Mary’s Primary School, a new primary school resulting from the merger of Brisbane and Kelburn Primary Schools and an early years centre.

Hunterston B staff have been praised for giving up their Christmas dinner to help keep the power station running after an emergency blackout struck.

Unit 4 was taken offline after a problem with a pneumatic valve and staff had to rush to site to perform maintenance.

The operators of the EDF power plant decided to shut down the unit to carry out repairs and it was put back into service three days later.

Pupils from Cumbrae Primary School also made headlines as they staged a Scottish concert, full of traditional songs and poetry, while the Largs Community Choir staged a successful coffee morning and raised £860 for their funds.

Largs AFC boss Stephen Quigg was also in turmoil after turning the team’s fortunes around since taking over as manager.

The club had their fate in their own hands as they pushed for top spot in Division 3 Ayrshire Truck with five games to go.

‘Quiggy’ joined the amateur team as a striker to help the team before taking the reins.

Finally, the bat’s signal was successfully answered as Largs Academy held a World Book Day celebration as children dressed up as their favorite book character or superhero.
