Moyvane Notes December 20, 2021

IT’S HERE, CHRISTMAS, another “different” Christmas! All we can do is make the best of what’s going on and try to stay safe. They say “It takes a village to raise a child” and when the child leaves the village, the parish, the child is not forgotten. Wherever you are in the world you can be certain that your family and friends are thinking of you. We are lucky that technology has brought us all together, we can talk to each other and see each other. Use it. Make the most of it. Have a great Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you, at home and abroad. 
MOYVANE DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION: Dust off your runners/walking shoes and come join us for our Fun Run/Walk this St. Stephen’s Day. We have two routes, one is a 6km run around the local area or you have the option of a 3km walk. A perfect opportunity to get the whole family out for some fun and frolics! Registration will run from 11am until 11.50am at the Community Sports Hall, with the run/walk kicking off at 12noon, from the Community Sports Hall. There will be a prize for the best dressed runner and walker so get creative! Looking forward to seeing you on the 26th!
