HAIRDRESSERS: We would like to welcome and extend best wishes to Evita and Geza Belogh who recently opened a unisex hair salon next door to Loch Gowna Post office. In these recession times this has come as a great boost to the lake side village. This business will open from Monday to Friday. For further information please contact Evita at the salon.
THANKS: Michael and Bernadette McGahern would like to thank everyone who contributed towards the recent collection in aid of self help for the African children.
