CULLYFAD VILLAGE AREA: We didn’t have much to write about over the winter months but now that Spring is here there is much to be done and being done to improve the area. The Tidy Towns asked not to put flower baskets on ESB or telephone poles to carry flower baskets. Its now time once again to think ahead about our flower beds in the area. We had a great response last when we asked the ladies in the area to sponsor and do the beds. We would like to thank them for that and hope they might do the same this year. Please give me a shout if you will. Progressive 25 is coming to the end of season and we had good fun and everyone enjoyed the games. Bingo as usual every Wed night with good prize money. The 1000 euro has not been won on the wheel and if your luck is in come along and try your luck . You might get it. There is good money on all games and we will be giving out Easter eggs as usual on Wed night before Easter. We also have 2 plays in the community centre on Sunday night 7th April . More about this later. That’s all for this week.
