Roundwood notes week June 19th

Roundwood street


Preparations for this year’s festival on Sunday 6th of August are already in full swing. We are working hard to make sure we bring you another fun-filled weekend but to make this happen, we need help from our community. If you can spare some time on the 6th of August to help please message this page or email  so we can add your name to our list of volunteers. Help is also required the day before the Festival and the day after. Check out the Roundwood Street Festival Facebook page to get in touch Thank you 


The Tidy Towns judges will be winging their way to Roundwood any day now. The hanging baskets will be erected on the poles in the village shortly. Thanks to Terry Kavanagh for his tireless work in making up the baskets and maintaining them throughout the summer. A big shout out to all the businesses and residents who have great floral displays on show and are touching up the paint work on their premises. The village is looking great. If you have a bit of time to do some kerbside weeding, litter picking or to put a splash of paint on that wall or fence in or around your patch it would help greatly. Every little helps! Many thanks
