So Kiddies wash down those tractors for the big day as it will bring lots of entertainment, fun & prizes!

There is no law to say the wee farmers can park up their tractors after a good silage season and bring their trikes or go carts instead or even just to walk along with the rest, all in the name of a bit of fun so come along and enjoy the day.

A major new youth service has just been announced for Belturbet in County Cavan.
It’s an extension of the Bounce Back Youth Service which currently operates in some towns throughout the county, and is managed by Youth Work Ireland and the ISPCC. Belturbet has been identified as having a lack of dedicated youth services and support workers, and a dedicated youth drop-in cafe or youth space.
Under the new project, three youth workers will be based in Belturbet to provide services which support young people experiencing difficulties with drug and alcohol abuse, anti-social behaviour and mental health.
The project will also involve the development of a Youth Resilience Group Work Programme to help young people cope with the challenges of life today.
Maureen McIntyre, who is the Youth Officer with Cavan Monaghan ETB who are administering the project, says a number of concerns were raised about the lack of youth services in Belturbet in the past.
Create your own hand crafted willow basket in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere which you will be able to take home with you.
All materials and tools provided.
A light lunch will be provided also.
Cost for the full day is €65.
Places are limited early booking advisable.
For further information and bookings please contact Eddie on 086 8458106.
