Residents’ Group: It is time again for the grass cutting around the estate of Ard Baithin to begin. The residents provide the petrol for the lawnmower and the CE Environmental Workers cut the grass. Ard Baithin Residents Group usually collects around the doors for the grass cutting.

However we feel that this may put pressure on the residents and have decided to do something different this year. We intend to have a raffle to raise funds. The lines will be on sale soon when the prizes are finalised and then we will go around the estate.

We wish to thank everyone who very kindly helped out in any way last year.

M Doherty Timber donated fencing. Gamble Concrete donated concrete planters and a concrete bench. Raphoe Garden Centre donated trees and shrubs for the estate. We wish to thank Colrs Gary Doherty and Frank McBrearty Junior who donated funds for the upkeep of the estate. The Residents’ Group also wants to express their gratitude to the Environmental Workers on behalf of all the residents for their help in maintaining the estate.

There will be a 5 week session of baby massage starting on Friday June 12 2015 and running to July 10. Please call 91 48551 for further information.
