Askamore Journal 5

With some gentle persuasion and some not-so-subtle hints, a working group of Askamore Community Council is planning the fifth edition of Askamore Journal.

A meeting is scheduled to take place in Askamore Activity Centre on Monday, May 21st at 8.30 pm. Anyone who is interested in helping or contributing in any way is welcome to attend.

This is a great idea for our community and for the future generations of Askamore. Please come along to see what you or your family can contribute to the journal.

Askamore is going on tour!

Tour to Hook Peninsula.

A tour to Hook Peninsula has been organised for Saturday 26th May. The tour will leave from Askamore Community Centre at 9am and return at 6pm approx.

First stop will be a guided tour of Hook Lighthouse. We will then go to Tintern Abbey. After the guided tour of the Abbey, lunch can be purchased in adjoining Tea Rooms.

From there we travel to JFK Arboretum for the final visit of the tour.

The first tour to the National Stud was a great success as we hope this one will be. So book your place early and start looking forward to a great day out. Cost €30. Bookings to 0877795922.

Community Council Notes

Askamore Community Council would like to thank everyone who took part in the recent clean up. It was a huge success with many locals participating and helping. We would like to wish all involved in the 2k clean up well. Tidy Towns plans and projects are now underway and all help is most welcome.

Thank you also to Wexford Co. Co. for repairing the street lights in Askamore. We are now looking into the possibility of having additional lighting installed in the area. Any suggestions from local residents are encouraged.

Trad Sessions

Do you play an instrument? Can you sing? Do you enjoy listening to Traditional Irish music in the comfort of a bar with a nice, friendly atmosphere?

If so, then you’re in luck! Askamore will be running monthly Traditional Irish music sessions in The Schoolhouse Bar beginning on Sunday, June 3rd 2018 from 4.00 – 6.00pm.

The music will be playing, the bar will be open and the craic will be mighty so make sure to bring any instruments you have, your best singing voice and shoes for tapping your feet.

We look forward to seeing you there. For further information, please contact Stacey on 087 992 2481

Askamore Community Garden

Askamore Community Garden group is holding an information meeting next Monday night, April 23rd at 8.00pm in the activity centre for any budding (or expert!) gardeners in the community who would like to get involved.

The gardening group has been running with great success for the past 2 years, it has grown from strength to strength as can be seen in the raised beds & polytunnel in Le Cheile Park. As well as learning to grown organic fruit and vegetables, it’s a great opportunity to get out in the fresh air and to meet new people. The more people who get involved, the better we can make the community garden so why not come along to see what it’s all about and what you can do to help.
