Mary Fogarty and Maeve O’Hair attended the recent meeting in Ballinderry and gave a very informative talk. The next step will be to compile a Survey, which will be distributed in the area, to find out if people would like to see a meeting place established in Ballinderry as a venue for people to meet and exchange ideas, to socialise and meet new people and with a view to opening a co-op shop for crafts and home produced products. The survey will give you an opportunity to voice your ideas and needs.

Now that October is well and truly here we are rapidly approaching the yearly Charity Jumble Sale in Terryglass Community Hall on Halloween bank-holiday Saturday. Bargains are always to be found and lots of fun to be had.
Volunteers are needed and willing help greatly appreciated, especially for the preparation of the sale and the clean up afterwards.
This year there is a new formula, the organisers are offering people the opportunity to make a donation to the charity the sale is run for and in return they may run a table or half table for their own cause.
Please contact Mary McGeeney on 067 22164 for further information as soon as possible if you are considering your own table.
