About the memorial: The two war memorials for this school are in storage at the local museum. According to the Scottish War Memorials Project - "Seventy Old Spierians made the supreme sacrifice and the War Memorials were a central feature of the old school buildings. The memorial is now in storage at the North Ayrshire Museum in Saltcoats, awaiting a suitable location for re-erection. The school also had a Garden of Remembrance composed of a rose garden within a square of yew hedges and an internal path. This was under restoration by the YMBB youth group in 2012." "The Spier's labyrinth and the War Memorial in the Garden of Remembrance. Seventy ex-pupils from Spier's died in WWI and WW2. A War Memorial was located within the school, however since the demolition of the school no publicly accessible memorial has existed and the old rose garden at the 'Garden of Remembrance' has long been overgrown. In 2012 an old Spier's gatepier was collected, cleaned and placed within the old garden as a War Memorial. Youth Making Beith Better (YMBB) created a labyrinth around the standing stone War Memorial." _________________ Ken
