Other Branch News
In other branch news: the annual Good Friday morning walk could be in for a revamp – or, God forgive me, a resurrection.
A new route and the possible inclusion of a fun-run along with the long established walk are being considered. These as a means of breathing new life into the event – which first saw the light of day at the dawn of the final decade of the last century.
Here too, people with brainwaves and fundraising ideas would be very welcome to get involved. There will be more as the time draws nears. Jack Shanahan at Haven Pharmacy would be glad to hear of your fundraising ideas and initiatives at: 066 71 41125.
