They ask that as a precautionary measure, community members and staff do not come onto school grounds during that week to ensure safety requirements are met.

Well last week’s Pindone distribution went brilliantly well with over 30 folk helping put Pindone into bait stations. This was one of the easiest days to run that I can remember due to the great turn out. A few of us topped up the day with a second go in the afternoon but most were finished and gone by about 1 pm. A lovely day weather-wise and I am ordering the same for Saturday 19th because we need your help again then.
