Christmas fayre 2017


 

On Friday, December 1st there was a Christmas fayre held in the market Square with everything from fake snow to homemade gifts aswell as tasty homemade food and beverages to warm the cockles of every heart.  With a mix of young and young at heart it was great to see so many people turn out to witness and be part of the switching on of the Christmas lights.. Santa arrived at 7pm and was a great hit with the children, he used the mens shed as his grotto which was literally transformed from a working mens shed to an amazing santas grotto complete with 2 elves and a magical fireplace.  Joan Daly did a great job as compere for the evening and she kept all the old favoutite Christmas songs playing to keep everybody in the festive mood.  Thanks also to everybody who volunteered with all the preparation that went into creating such a magical fayre.

Playground gets a minor facelift - August 2017  by S.G.


 The playground has recently undergone a minor transformation with new metal railings added to replace the old broken wooden ones. A new structure has also been erected to replace the old one which underwent fire damage in 2015, the new one has allready been taken over by the local teenagers and is currently being used as a smoking hut.  Some of the local lads have also made the playground into their own personal football ground and have even refused to stop playing football when approached by a local lady who had her two young children in the playground. Westmeath County Council are to be complimented on repairing the playground to a high standard, unfortunately they may find themselves returning many times as the playground has allready had the some of the newly fixed railings shaken loose from the concrete base.
