Thank you

Mary and Diane would like to thank all who supported them in their recent fund raisers for the "To Russia with Love" charity. The most recent fund raised was a small sale of work on Sunday 28th March, which raised 100. Special thanks to the pupils of St. Farnans School, Prosperous for raising the sum of 260.

Can Recycling

The can recycling bank situated at Staplestown school car park is almost full. We’re making a special effort to fill it completely by the end of April so please continue depositing your cans there.

Library News

The mobile library will be visiting Staplestown again on Thursday 8th April between 12pm and 12.45pm. Why not join up and take advantage of the many new books on the shelves.

Community Clean-Up

Local community areas were engaged in a very successful Clean-up of our road-sides on Saturday 27th March from approx. 11am onwards. Adults and children alike undertook to walk the highways and byways in search of elusive litter, trap it in whatever manner possible and ultimately dispose of said litter in any one of the 4 large skips parked at convenient locations. At the end of the evening the skips were packed to such capacity that the owners were complaining of a Clean-up too well done. Congratulations to all who turned up to spent their free Saturday being so civic minded. However the old saying "More hands make light work" is being eagerly anticipated when on Saturday 17th April, 4 more skips will be placed at different locations within the community and the exercise repeated again. There will be a reminder of this event in the Leinster Leader at a later date.
