A general clean-up is going well and the area is looking especially good which can only improve our points in the forthcoming Tidy Towns Competition. Work continues every Tuesday evening in Kilbarron and if you can spare some time it would be much appreciated, meeting in the village around 7pm.


Work continues to go well in Ballinderry village thanks to the work of the Village Improvements group that meets each Thursday at 7pm at Elsie Hogan’s.

The Tip of the Week is- Protecting Your Home from Break-ins. Number one do not advertise that you are away. The first thing that a burglar looks for when choosing a house to break into is the one with no one in. If your house looks occupied when you are out, most burglars will simply pass by. Use automatic light timers, also timers for radios and TV’s. Never leave doors/windows unlocked and don’t hide a key outside. Ask a neighbour to pick up your post if you are away.
