Our litter picking and tree planting event has been re-arranged for Sunday 25th November from 10:30am. Meet at the entrance by the Gaelscoil and wear your wellies! We have 300 trees to plant as well as a litter collection to do, so we are hoping for a good turnout! We will also split off part way through to plant some trees in the Mangala.
