Community Clean Up
A clean up of our local area will take place on Monday week April 10th beginning at 7pm, organised by Ballintotis Area Community Council. The organizers will be looking for all householders in the Ballintotis area to come out and give 30 minutes in their own locality. Many hands make light work - don't just let it to the same people all the time.
The Road Race is now creeping up with just three weeks to go to the big event on Thursday April 20th. On line entry remains open on www.ballintotis.com until Monday April 17th. The countdown is certainly underway amongst the running fraternity as reflected by the numbers out on the course over the past weekend and earlier this week.
Remember there will be a trial run around the course for members of local clubs on Tuesday April 11th at 7pm. Light refreshments will be served afterwards.
In the meantime the organizing committee continue to meet on a regular basis- sponsorship of prizes and cash donations to cover the cost of running the event are still required. Please call 08608778182. Next meeting is on Monday next April 3rd at 8.30pm.
In conjunction with the race - the usual Walk will also take place- beginning at 6.30pm on April 20th.
The Ballintotis Fit4Life will conclude their current training season in Castlemarty on this Thursday March 30th.
