Best wishes are extended to Aubrey Fuller (Barntown) who celebrated his birthday recently in the Ferrycarrig Hotel. Aubrey's family travelled from the UK to ensure his 'surprise' 90th birthday was one he would always remember. He was joined by his 87-year-old brother Brigadier DJ Fuller and his children Caroline, John and Rachel.

His daughter Charlotte was unfortunately unable to attend the get-together. Enjoying the celebration also were Aubrey's eight grandchildren and sons in law and daughter in law. Aubrey was also joined by some of the staff members from Aubrey's local shop O'Brien's Londis, Larkin's Cross. We wish Aubrey all the best in his 90th year.

A couple of big weekends are coming up for scouts. There's monster fundraising on June 18/19 in aid of forthcoming trip to International scout jamboree in Birmingham. There will be tea on the lawn and a cake sale on Saturday 18th after mass with tea on the lawn; then there is a cake sale and car boot sale on Sunday 19th. There is also a cake sale on Saturday 18th after mass in Tomhaggard and Mulrankin on Sunday 19th. More details closer to event.

On following weekend June 24 to 26 Kilmore scouts are hosting Wamboree Wexford which is a county camp for beavers, cubs, scouts, ventures, rovers and scouters. There's a full programme of activities with all funds raised going to the Syrian Refugee Crisis in association with Trocaire.

Thanks to generous local sponsorship the majority of camp fees will go to the charity. It's the brainchild of two youth members Josh and Haley Power. We're hoping it will be well supported by Scout groups from around the county as it's such a worthwhile cause.
