Laragh and Glendalough Tidy Towns

We are thankful for the sunny cold day and the great work done by all our volunteers  helping out last Saturday.

Laragh bridge was cleared, bulbs planted in the village centre and at the Beechwood entrance, bags of rubbish lifted and climbing roses with hawthorn planted up a fence at the back of houses in the village centre(encouraging biodiversity). There is such a large deer population in this area we have to safeguard plants with wire and we are mindful of what to plant and what the deer like to eat. 

Every effort is made to keep our community tidy and our young Junior Tidy Towns are brilliant at helping us out, making them aware of the work done for better community life and environment. Thank you all.

Bright Stars Baby & Toddler Group

Why not come along to our baby and toddler group on Wednesday mornings at 10.30am. Each week this group will provide a welcoming and lively space for parents and children to gather and grow. Our activities will include ‘messy play’, story and song, games (guest speakers), snacks, tidy-up and new equipment which will allow both you as the parent/carer and your child to meet friends, explore new things and learn. For some parents, grandparents and carers, the weekly catch-up and opportunity for children to play and make new friends is enough. For others, the support makes them that bit more confident in their parenting role. Cost €4.50 per family. Call us on 0404 45600 if you have any questions about the group.
