Tidy Village Committee

There was an air of excitement around Lisryan on Wednesday last with the arrival of a film crew. This was a great opportunity to showcase how much has been achieved in the village and also provided our local talent with a chance to display their immense talents. Many thanks to all who turned out for the filming and who contributed to the occasion in any way.
