Maíre Buckley says thanks

I would just like to say a huge thank you to all who donated and came to my coffee morning in aid of Helping U Grow. €2050 was raised, which is unbelievable. Your support has not gone unnoticed and I don’t think I can say thank you enough. I am travelling out to Uganda this summer to volunteer in a school for two weeks. During my time there I will be doing arts and crafts, sports and lessons with the children as well as general work in the school such as painting and decorating. Thanks once again and I will keep ye all updated on how it goes!
As people gathered to help at my coffee morning, neighbours and friends got to know each other over a cup of tea and a chat. Not only did people help a community in Africa over a cup of tea / coffee but through the gathering on Sunday people built up their own local community here in Marlfield
Spring has Arrived

Village Meeting

The next Marlfield Village Meeting takes place on Monday night, March 11 in St Patrick’s Chapel at 8pm. One of the items that will be on the agenda is the relaying of the aisle which is required as the carpet which was laid many years ago is getting very worn and discoloured. We have had a encouraging response to our appeals for funds and thank you for the donation received this week. Ideas for the agenda are always welcome and will be discussed Contact chairman Joe Burke or any of the committee with your views.
