TY News Bulletin 10


Tuesday Trip - Info from Ms McKinney

The man looking after the wall climbing showed symptoms of covid on Friday and hasn't been in work to confirm the booking. We won’t know for sure if it is going ahead until tomorrow when someone in the office gets back to him. I have told them if we can't go this week to pencil us in for the following week.

Total cost is probably going to work out about 7 - 10 euro including the bus in and out to Derry.

During the news gathering could you get everyone to complete the google form in the link below. Regardless if they already completed one on Friday as some people had selected 1 activity 3 times. I will schedule an email with this link for 8:50 Monday morning.

Activity slots will be a first come first served basis and if allowed we may revisit and switch activities another week.
