Annual Festival – Volunteers Needed.

Burncourt Community Council will host its Annual Festival on the weekend of July 21. This is always a popular event in the community calendar. The running of the festival takes a lot of energy and manpower and an input of extra energy, ideas and enthusiasm whether it comes from individuals or local clubs would be appreciated by the members of the Community Council. People may have heard of the idea “Volunteer for a While” and this is what you are being asked to do so that this annual festival can remain alive. A Festival Meeting will be held on this Friday, June, 8 at 8.30 in the Community Hall. Please come along,
