The Coronabears have helped to launch the new Largs Market today to get some bear necessities.

The popular bears which have been an online hit will be there all day and available for selfies, selling their last few calendars to raise funds for Douglas Park.

The Largs Events group will stage a new local Largs Market outside every Saturday from August 1 between 10am and 4pm.

The volunteers behind the project say it can help boost businesses as they look to chart a course out of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chair of Largs Events, Cllr Ian Murdoch, said: “Although we were looking at this prior to the lockdown, the idea has grown in importance as we look to find a plan to help the town get back on its feet. Local businesses need the support of local people now more than ever."
