Thanks to Mick Dee for organising, and to everyone for taking part – old and young alike.

Great night was had by all – and lots of medals given out.

Planting help wanted tomorrow morning

snowdrops

Apologies for short notice but if anyone is available at 11 am tomorrow morning and feels like a bit of gardening, you’d be more than welcome to join us in Le Chéile Park to plant some snowdrops in the green – just before they die back fully.

If you can make it, bring a trowel and a kneeler with you.
