8K FUN RUN/5K WALK ON ST.STEPHEN’S DAY
On St. Stephen’s Day a 5k family walk and an 8K fun run has again been organised by Charleville Lions Club for the benefit of Charleville Tidy Towns. This has become an annual event and has proved to be most enjoyable, giving people a chance to get out and get exercise and fresh air after the festivities of Christmas Day. It is an ideal opportunity to catch up with family and friends and spend some time together, and this is especially so for many of our young people working and living away from Charleville.
This year walkers and runners can register and collect their numbers at the Scout Hall in the car park behind the library from 10.15am for an 11am start. The family walk will go from the Scout Hall down the Railway Road while the runners will complete an 8K route mapped out by North Cork A.C. with the finish line at the bridge by the Pitch &Putt. Mulled wine, tea/coffee and mince pies will be provided by members of Charleville Lions Club in the Scout Hall after the walk/run. A draw for hampers based on your walk/run number will take place in the Scout Hall also.
We are very grateful to Garda Nick Phelan and all the gardai in Charleville for nominating Charleville Tidy Towns as the beneficiary of a very successful soccer tournament run by them on November 4th. We thank all participating teams for making this tournament a success and congratulate the winners.
A YEAR OF PROGRESS
2017 has been a very busy year for Charleville Tidy Towns. Many significant projects were undertaken and completed. The major ones included the fountain, the derelict house on Smith’s Lane, information boards in the park as well as maintenance of the Garden of Remembrance and flower tubs on Main Street. At the moment we are working on the approach road from Cork and significant planting has been done here.
We are grateful to all the schools, individuals, groups and organisations who helped us this year.
We appeal to the people of Charleville to come out in force to support our walk/run so we can continue to take on new projects in 2018 and make Charleville an even more attractive place in which to live and work
