DROP IN MORNING: - The parish monthly get together for March took place in Streete Parish Park Centre on Thursday morning of last week which was extremely wet and as a result our numbers were down. The next similar meeting is from 10.30 to 12.30 on the first Thursday of the month which will be Thursday, April 4th. It is just a get together, not a meeting and a variety of subjects which affect residents can be discussed with a cup of tea/coffee and a bun/tart, so why not take a note of 4th April. All welcome.
SOCIAL DANCE: - our next Social Dance takes place in Streete Parish Park Centre on this Friday, 15th March from 10.30p.m.-12.30a.m. Music will be supplied by the ever popular John Hogan. Admission including supper and free raffle €10 - All welcome.
