Moyvane Notes – 26th June, 2007

Moyvane Development Association:
A committee meeting will take place on Tuesday, 3rd July at 9pm in the Marian Hall.

Congratulations to all involved in the Nature Walk and Village Trail on receiving the "North Kerry Walks Open Gate Trophy"recently in Tralee for the third time. A hat trick award is a huge honour in this very keen competition. The extention of the trail to the restored Historical Lime Kiln has played a big part in this achievement. We are thrilled with this award and gratefully wish to THANK all those involved and North Kerry Walks. Despite the weather, village clean ups continue during Tidy Towns season and we ask for your continued support and help to enhance the overall appearance of the village.
