Keep Fit Classes in Clonown
Keep fit classes will be held in Clonown Community Centre over the coming weeks. These classes have proven very popular in the past. Depending on the demand these classes will be held on either Monday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings. If there is enough demand there will be a separate class for older people. Last year the class for older people proved very successful. Anyone interested in these classes please contact Ronan 086-3029804, Ann 087-2261096 or Rosaleen (for older people) 087-7600128.

Rubbish in the Graveyard
Please note that there is no waste disposal service in the local graveyards and people are asked in future to bring home the material removed from the graves, e.g. old wreaths, pots, clay. Apart from being unsightly it is also disrespectful to the memory of those buried there to have rubbish dumped.

Midland Simon Shop
Donations of unwanted gifts, clothes, shoes, handbags, bed linen and household items urgently needed for the shop on Sean Costello Street, Athlone (beside Supermac’s). Contact 090-6476577.
