The AGM of the Lady’s Well Group was held recently in the Canton Hall. The year 1994-1995 was considered to be very successful.

Lady Day was the highlight of the year with thousands of people attending the open air Celebration Mass. Great credit is due to the group who give so much of their time voluntarily caretaking the grounds and planting flowers and shrubs.

The group has acquired approximately one acre of adjoining land which, when developed, will relieve the pressure for space in the car park, especially on Lady Day. It is also envisaged to set aside part of the new park for wheelchairs only.

There is undoubtedly an immense amount of work to be done over the next few years D.V.

New members are always very welcome. To Mick Scully, who is indisposed at present, we send sincere good wishes for a speedy return to good health.
