Also it was lovely to see the recognition that our Community Hero Peggy Stennett received especially on TV last Monday evening. It is all very positive and good news and it provides us with the enthusiasm to build on this result in the years ahead.

To join us as a volunteer you do not need to be a gardener, painter etc all that is required is your good-will and just an hour or two of your time per week. Report and photos on and on Facebook.


This week's winner was Maria Foley and she picked up a handy €148.
