THE Long Lane Area Residents Association have been working hard on fighting the on going Covid-19 situation and a new decoration dubbed ‘Hazelhenge’ has been created in the Hazelbrook area.
Residents are staying active and some took to brightening up a neglected green area at Hazelbrook among the various projects being undertaken.
The group have been texting local residents within the area on any assistance that may be required.
They have also been handing out face masks and working with other local groups on the Long Lane with food and other essential items for residents.
Commitee treasurer Karen McCafferty said: “We are always texting our neighbours to see if everything is ok. A small talk or just a a check can make all the difference. We continue to keep our residents up to date through our social media outlets.”
The Residents are still keeping active with the green area development while implementing the social distancing guidelines.
Chairperson, Finn O Donnell said: “We are currently working on a neglected green area in Hazelbrook and it is great to get out to meet the neighbours and be working on projects like this.
“We are working along other groups in the area to help people with financial worries and in need of food and other essential items. We are also sourcing funding for care packages for our community.”
The committee have recently been awarded a grant from the The Culture & Creativity Grants Scheme and have announced that they are developing a project for the young on Long Lane which they are currently seeking applicants.
“We are looking for our young residents to get in contact and share ideas for a mural of their design. this will be their mural and the final say will go the participants.”Tags:
