YOUTH CLUB: Following a successful AGM on Friday September 13 we are pleased to announce that Tarbert Youth Club will go ahead this year. Many thanks to the parents who have joined the committee to make this possible. Registration for the Youth Club will take place on Monday September 23 at 8.30pm in the Community Centre. Cost of registration is €10 per child. Due to issues with parental supervision last year it has been decided to take a deposit of €20 from a parent, refundable when their night’s supervision is completed. We hope this is acceptable to parents as it would not be possible to run the club for insurance purposes without adequate adult supervision.
CONGRATULATIONS: Well done to Tarbert Tidy Towns Committee on getting a very respectable points increase in the Tidy Towns contest. The Committee members and their helpers put an amount of work into showcasing our parish in an ever improving splendor and it is encouraging to see their efforts being rewarded.
