As part of National Tree Week we are inviting the Community Council to plant a native tree from each of the 8 areas. The tree planting will take place on Sunday 11th March at 2pm. The trees will be planted as part of our new boundary hedge in order to protect our new garden and to provide both shelter and in time food for our local birds. Please come along and help us celebrate the occasion.
Great news guys!

Mairead and I started digging the "lazy beds" for the potatoes on Wednesday. You can see one side the turf is cut and on the other the turf is turned. After some local advice the "turning" is the way it was done locally to keep the grass from growing through. Thanks Bob!
We are planning to plant some potatoes in the new Community Garden using a lazy bed technique does anyone have a trailer load (maybe more!) of well rotted manure or some top soil we could use? If you would like to help please contact Owen 083-1372013
