ROUNDWOOD & TOMRILAND ~ PURE MILE WINNERS
The Roundwood & Moneystown area featured well in the prizes at the Pure Mile 2015 Awards in the Brook Lodge Hotel recently. The Roundwood Pure Mile was awarded the Best Natural History Pure Mile Award at the ceremony while the Tomriland Pure Mile received the highly commended Litter Free Award. A huge amount of work took place in both areas as evidenced by the photographs on show on the night. Well done and thank you to all involved – a credit to our community.
It’s that time of year again when the call goes out for photographs for the Roundwood 2016 calendar. The calendar has been a great success for the last two years and with your help the 2016 version will be just as great. Please email photos that you would like to see grace the walls of Roundwood and beyond to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 086 8055040 to arrange collection.
