The No Fry Zone objective has been achieved.
RT 17 was ratified with 25 councillors voting to adopt this into the plan out of 32 councillors (majority required). 3 voted against, 2 abstained and 2 were not present.
This campaign started over 3 years ago when a fast food outlet targeted a completely inappropriate location close to 3 schools within Greystones and very nearly succeeded. It’s fantastic that we are now able to ensure that this cannot happen again in Wicklow this the adaption of this objective into the County Development Plan.
We can't thank you enough for making time to help us with our biggest
GETNS event/fundraiser of the year. The committee has been working really
hard to bring you a super Craft Fair. Please consider helping us with some
of the following things that make our fair run so smoothly.

something! Cupcakes, cakes to slice, brownies, cookies, scones, bread,
pretzels-- whatever your specialty is we'll sell it! Baking can be
dropped off from 2-4pm SATURDAY the 12th OR on the day of
our fair, early if possible on the 13th. If you bring it on a plate or in
tupperware, please label it clearly with your name (lids too) and if it's got nuts let
us know. THANK YOU!

Craft Fair Committee
Principal Catherine is setting up a "Harvest Table" by the Infants area for this week coming and she hopes that the children will add a harvest vegetable/item to it as they come in over the week. It could be e.g. pumpkin, conkers, etc. Anything that is about Harvest.
