Is there any chance of a wee hint as to when the next Scotland Transerv patrol might venture in these parts north of Largs.

I picked three tickets in the Skelmorlie Christmas 'Spot The Transerv Patrol' Sweepstake but they have all expired.

The draw is still open but am reluctant to waste any more money on it.

Seriously though there are half a dozen bone jarring Category 1 potholes on the A78 between Knock Castle Gate House and Skelmorlie Castle turn off, all extant since Christmas Eve 2018 and no repairs carried out to date.
