Due to severe lack of numbers at the Community Games AGM, an EGM will be held next Wednesday, November. 14th at 8.30 pm in Askamore Hall. If parents don’t attend the EGM, there will be no other option but to close the club. This means that activities like draughts, gymnastics, table quizzes, badminton, soccer, art and  handwriting will no longer be held in the Kilrush/Askamore area. This would be a huge disappointment to children who love being part of such activities. Please make every effort to attend next Wednesday to ensure that the community games continues.
