Donations are continuing to come in for the car park fundraising in Tydavnet village. The total amount funded to date (9th April 2018) is €12,523, and the €1,100 from Tydavnet Drama Troupe. So far there have been about 130 envelopes opened, so the average has dropped to just under the €100 – however, ALL donations are most welcome. We are well on target to reach the shortfall in grant funding, and already the area around the chapel is looking much better following the tarmac job today. Please do your best to get this project over the line – it’ll be a great amenity for the village; you only have to look at the aerial photo from last year’s Confirmation ceremony to realise how necessary this car park is! If there was an emergency where cars or people had to get away quickly, it just would not happen – cars were blocked in everywhere. Our next milestone is getting over the €15,000 mark, then we’ll be quarter of the way there. Well done everyone, we’re getting there with a great team effort.
