The annual eco camp is ongoing this week, and what fun it has been. On Monday, there was a visit from the Mad Professor, Tuesday was wellies and water activities, while Wednesday is the annual mud bath in Bragan. Thursday is Tanagh day, and the week will finish in Ballinode Hall with a visit from Melvin and Billy on Friday. Photos of each day’s activities are on www.ballinodetidytowns.weebly.com  Other upcoming activities include a visit from the members of Monaghan tidy towns network which will be stopping in the village on Saturday 20th July, before paying visits to Hollywood lake, Scotstown and Tydavnet villages. We look forward to being part of the tour. Judging will soon be starting for the Monaghan County Council Tidy Areas competition, we look forward to your continued help in this competition.
