Call for volunteers: Grange Sports Club has run for 12 nights over the summer holidays for a number of years. Last year an average of 40 children attended each night, playing three different sports nightly. The committee who ran it for the last six years has stood down and thanks all involved in helping to run the club. We held a meeting before Easter to form a new committee but there were no volunteers. What’s involved is for the committee between them to be available for the 12 nights and the preparation leading up to the start of the club. There’s a list to work to, good coaches and support from the school and outgoing committee. So, last call.... Are there two or three parents in the community who will run the club? Contact Ann-Marie 087-7972064.
