Presentation of Funds from Millstreet Calendar

2016 03 15 006 Presentation of Funds for the Millstreet CalendarOn behalf of Millstreet Community Council, I would like to thank all those involved in the production of the Millstreet Calendar 2016. We appreciate the photos that were supplied by all the local photographers that made the final cut for this year’s print. I would like to thank Justin for his design work and his prints that made the calendar so amazing and memorable. Great credit is due to members of the Community Council for distributing the calendars to sellers and also to the members of the community/shops/businesses who displayed and sold the issues. Without this support, this venture would not be sustainable. A special work of thanks goes to Katelyn, Lydia and Christian Murphy who help every year with selling the calendars at the Christmas market. There were more than 600 calendars sold in total and this year’s proceeds go towards the upkeep and maintenance of our newly furbished Gym. To conclude, I would like to acknowledge the people who purchase the calendar every year, both at home and abroad and I thank you all sincerely for supporting this fund raising venture. I hope that you enjoy the production. – from Marie Twomey

Community Gym closed for refurbishment

Millstreet Community Council would like to announce that the Community Gym is now closed for refurbishment. With ongoing challenges to secure income to run the venture, we are very grateful for having been offered a sports grant which will assist in the upgrading of the premises and replacement of obsolete equipment in the Gym. In order to complete this work, it is clearly necessary to close the premises. We look forward to re-opening a new modernised and efficient enterprise at the very earliest opportunity. We thank you for your understanding and support in this matter.
