Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
Work continues on the field with the diggers back on site since last week and the laying out of the new field about to begin. A big few weeks now lie ahead as we reach the final stages of this phase of the project - drainage systems will be prepared and then levelling out with topsoil and sand. The costs continue to be a major part of this and so we are continuing to seek funding for this phase of the project. Our membership packages are still open and we thank everyone who has contributed to this to date. If you would like to avail of any of these packages, please contact any club officer or committee member for more information. Donations can also be made electronically - bank details available from Anne Kennedy & John Tooher. Please be sure to include your details if transferring money to this dedicated fundraising account.
