Community Fun Day this Saturday at the Leisure Centre

Come along to the Community Fun Day at the Leisure Centre this Saturday between Noon and 3pm.  While admission is free, the event is necessary to ensure wide consultation and involvement in putting together a forthcoming funding application for the Trillick Leisure Hub project.  The Centre is probably our best cross-community resource so be sure to round up as many people as you can!  Details are on the flyer below:

‘Library in a Box’ for Trillick

Trillick Post Office has been chosen as one of only three post offices to avail of the joint Libraries NI / DARD ‘Library in a Box’ initiative (in association with Trillick 2020) to provide library facilities in selected local post offices.  This commendable library out-reach initiative is for an initial trial-period of 12 months.  Books and DVDs will be changed regularly and can be tailored to meet local needs and interests – just mention to PJ next time you’re in the Post Office.

Gone are the days of filling in library cards etc.  Since this is an official library service, you use your normal library smart card and just swipe both it and the book when borrowing a book:

Also, in case you’ve read the lot in a fortnight(!), Libraries NI mobile library stops outside the Post Office every second Tuesday (23 June / 7 July and every 2 weeks thereafter) from 10.00am – 11.30am.

Various studies attest to the learning and enjoyment value of paper as opposed to e-books / screens; and this new facility will be a convenient resource for local parents and local schools to ensure that children have an opportunity to sample some proper books.

In an age of increasing cut-backs in public services, it’s important to remember this is a trial period and that we get into the habit of using this handy new service as much as possible, to ensure that it becomes a permanent feature after the 12 months trial period.

Strictly Come Dancing: Launch Night Mahons 24th May

str

A couple of dates to put in your calendar – various local people have been ‘volunteered’ to take part in Trillick’s ‘Strictly’.  The event launches in Mahons in Irvinestown on Sunday week the 24th of May.

At the launch, the ‘volunteers’ will be interviewed live on stage and matched with a dance partner.  It’s £5 in on the door; doors open 6.30 for a 7.30 start; and the launch will be followed by a G Brooks tribute act.

These brave souls currently are learning how to bust some killer moves (and in the case of one or two of the blokes, avoiding busting anything else, including trouser seams) at a series of top-secret  locations between now and the dance final, to be held in Trillick on the night of the August bank holiday on Monday 31 August.

Early photos of the dancers will shortly be posted here on Facebook (page link to follow) – see how many of them you’ll be able to name.
