CLEAN UP YOUR ACT -- 'Dog fouling is foul' is the theme running through the sketch 'Clean Up Your Act' that youth in Cranmore Youth Drop-in are producing in Abbeyquarter Community Centre on Wednesday 7th November at 7pm.

The Mayor David Cawley will be in attendance as will Conal Collery County Veterinary Inspector. This venture is part of an on-going Anti- Litter & Anti Graffiti project that the youth have been involved in over the last number of months that is raising awareness on the issue of litter and graffiti. On the night the art work the youth have produced will be on exhibit and poop scoop dispensers displaying the artwork will be available to the public free of charge. In addition information stands on care of dogs will be on hand for the public. All are welcome to attend. This project is funded under the Anti -Litter & Anti-Graffiti Scheme administered by Sligo County Council.


The Cranmore Co op welcomes a new Assertive Outreach Alcohol & Drugs worker Sinead Rafferty with the North Western Regional Drugs Taskforce.

Sinead's mobile is 085/7816793. We are delighted to have Sinead as part of the Team in the Co-op.


Welcome to new member of Cranmore Co-op staff, Liam Somers, who is the Coop's new Caretaker. Liam is a popular local resident and takes over the mantle from John Carolan. Liam is kept busy keeping the Co-op in good working order especially as the Drop In is very busy these winter evenings. Our thanks to John & Jonathon for all their hard work.


Women in Cranmore are certainly going to be fit for Christmas. Cranmore Co-op is running fitness classes involving use of trampolines in conjunction with SSRP on Monday nights from 7 to 9pm. The response was so positive with large numbers in attendance that a second class had to be organised. The energetic tutor Claire Flaherty inspired all with her energy. Claire is a huge hit with the women and the fun and craic is mighty while also achieving the main goal which is to be fighting fit for Christmas. The initial six week programme will be concluding in two weeks time. Based on the success of the programme Cranmore Co-op and Sligo Sports & Recreation Partnership are committed to sustaining a local activity programme of choice with the women. The fee for the programme will remain at a very affordable price of ?2 per person.


As part of National Recreation Week Mountain Biking will take place on Friday November 2nd. Trained coaches will deliver the programme and bikes and helmets will be provided. Pre-registration required. Contact Helen O'Hara on 9149951 or 0879728717 for more details on registeration.
