Moyvane Development Association:
Thanks to all the volunteers who participated in thevillage clean up last Wednesday May 30th. The hard work & enthusiasm of all is evident throughout the village. We would ask you to be extra vigilant over the next couple of months as judging can take place at any time during June & July and the judges do not announce their arrival, they just come quietly and leave even more quietly. You can help in many ways, by turning up for clean ups, organising a clean up with your neighbours on your road or in your housing development. Be extra vigilant of litter, watch out for cigarette ends etc. outside homes or business premises. All ideas that will help improve the appearance of the village are welcome by committee members. Please keep up your efforts throughout the year. Watch this space for information on the next planned clean-up. The next monthly meeting will be held in The Marian Hall on next Monday night June 11th at 9pm.
