Inver Johnstown Leading Lights nominee – Johnstown Community Playground and Sensory Garden

Johnstown Community Playground Committee met with Dick Daly, Inver Johnstown and Ben Lenihan, Inver’s Retail Director to receive Inver’s Leading Lights sponsorship. Dick Daly presented the cheque to the committee on behalf of Inver.

Johnstown does not have a playground, there are no amenities for small children and there isn’t a safe place for them to run and play in the community.  The local church very kindly donated  land on the Rathdowney Rd and planning permission for the playground has been granted.

The committee are hoping to get the playground developed and completed by the end of this year and we wish them every success in this wonderful endeavour.

Inver Leading Lights gives sponsorship towards a Greenhouse for children to grow plants via Barraduff Tidy Village Group

Inver forecourt partner Mick O’Donoghue chose some very inspiring and innovative nominees for Inver’s Leading Lights programme.

Barraduff Tidy Village Group (BTVG) was established 2 years ago to improve the common areas in Barraduff.  To include the local children in their community the group constructed a Poly Tunnel in the local school  and are teaching the students gardening skills. They learn to plant and grow trees, shrubs,  and flowers. These plants are then transplanted around their local community,

Barraduff Tidy Village Group are improving the local area and teaching children vital skills they can take with them throughout  their lives. They are motivating children and giving them confidence in their own abilities, while at the same time instilling children with pride in their local community of Barraduff.

Congratulations to all involved in this wonderful initiative!
