The month of October is Community Alert Awareness Month. Community Alert operates on a partnership between An Garda Stations and the public. It works on the basis that every member of the community can help to improve the quality of the area by keeping a look out for neighbours and reporting suspicious activities to the Gardai.
So be active, be alert and be involved. Aim to reduce social isolation, create a safer, caring community, be a good neighbour, also visit older people and vulnerable people in the community.

Start collecting your used clothing, shoes, linens, household textiles, stuffed toys (any condition once clean). Bags can be left into Kilbarron School any Friday from now until the collection date of November 18th
