New Ballintotis "Watch Group"
At last week's Community Council Monthly Meeting, a new group was formed. Thanks to great the work of Kieran O'Sullivan and Ger Broderick BALLINTOTIS WATCH has been set up. This is basically a "whatsapp" group that gives us a bit more security especially during the winter months. It means that anybody who has a smart phone can access the group by joining up. Thereby instant communication is received by all members regarding security matters in our area. It's up to the members to keep a watchful eye should they notice something or somebody unusual in the area. By means of an instant message everybody is in the know. To join the group please register locally with Ger Broderick. Contact Ger on 087-7716888 with your name and number - remember you must have access to "whatsapp" to join the group.
