St. Mary's Primary School would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to the people of Rathlin Island for the very generous support they gave to the school in the collection of clothes etc., in the recycling of all these materials into money for the school year 2013-2014.
Murphy's coal is currently taking orders for coal delivered to the island. They are looking to come over once they have a full lorry's worth of orders, probably on Friday 23rd May (weather permitting). Please ring 028 2177 1268 to place your order.
There were five nominations for the Committee by the deadline of Thursday 1st May.
Four Committee members were re-nominated: Michael Cecil, Patricia McCurdy, Tom McDonnell and John McQuilkin (who had been co-opted since the last AGM). Ciaran McCurdy was nominated as a new member. In addition, Noel McCurdy has announced that he will be stepping down from the Committee at the AGM. This means that there are now five vacancies, and as there are no more than five nominations an election will not be necessary.
There was a huge pile of various types of certificates to give out to Rathlin residents on Monday afternoon, when there was an event organised to recognise the many and varied ways in which members of the island community contribute to island life and further their own qualifications and experience.
The 2014 Annual General Meeting of the Rathlin Development & Community Association will be held on Thursday 15th May at 7.30pm in the Parochial Hall. All members of the Association are encouraged to attend!
Nominations for the Committee are also invited, and must be submitted in writing to the Resource Centre by 3.00pm on Thursday 1st May.
A group of Rathlin residents attended the ‘Appreciative Inquiry’ training held on the island on Monday and Tuesday of this week. In total, fourteen people participated in the training, with nine residents being able to commit a lot of their time to complete the workshops.
