Children’s Flower / Plant display with recycled items – decorate your community park

Have you started yours yet??

We would like to invite children to create a floral / plant display using any recycled item, such as an old boot, or wellington, or kettle or any such item, and it will be placed on the wall up to Le Chéíle Park to showcase the creativity and imagination of the children of Askamore.

Get cracking and we will accept your items from next Wednesday evening, July 24th @ 7pm.

Help us make the park a special place for everyone.
