Community Employment

It is that time of year and the grass is finally growing! Just to remind people that the Camross CE workers will be out and about cutting grass in all the different areas and road junctions from now on. It can be difficult to hear oncoming traffic when working a lawn mower or strimmers so we would ask everyone to keep this in mind when approaching people working near the roadside. The success of last years Race Night has enabled the Camross CE scheme to carry on with all the work we do in the Parish and hopefull this years Race Night in July will be equall as successful
