Murroe Community Council: The questionnaire concerning the need for a community car to aid people in our parish in getting to their medical/hospital appointments is being distributed as widely as we can manage. It is vital that we get feedback (i.e. people who are in need of such a service returning the filled forms to the address given) in order to increase the likelihood of obtaining such a service. If you do not receive a form through your letterbox, there are copies available in the church, post office, Sean English Shop and the Spar Shop. We are required to complete the survey before mid-August hence the need to get people to return the forms by August 6th.
