Children ‘in tears’ after playground is closed

first_imgThere has been shock in the Glenties area after the sudden closure of the local playground.Children and families were upset to learn the news yesterday that they would lose their beloved community play area due to ongoing issues.The Glenties Playground Committee said they were forced to close after failing to get Donegal County Council to take over responsibility for the space. The committee had sought to hand over the upkeep, maintenance and insurance costs to the council, but efforts to secure this funding were unsuccessful. The committee said that the costs they faced for the insurance and upkeep were unsustainable.Local residents were shocked and disappointed to learn about the sudden closure of the playground on Friday. Parents and grandparents have said that the closure will be a huge loss to the town.However, efforts are now underway to resolve the situation.Local County Councillor Anthony Molloy said he was in contact with the local authority on the matter. Cllr Molloy and Pat the Cope Gallagher TD have planned to meet with the Glenties Playground Committee this Saturday afternoon. “I am confident we can find a swift resolution to the ongoing issues and have it re-opened for the children as soon as possible,” Cllr Molloy said.Independent councillor Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig added that such playgrounds are a service for the community which must be funded by the council.Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig said: “There is a dozen-plus playgrounds like this organised and run by community committees. If they can, and if they are willing, they should be handed over to the responsibility of Donegal County Council. Monies have to be found for the insurance because this is an important service for the community.”Children ‘in tears’ after playground is closed was last modified: October 28th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Glentiesplaygroundlast_img read more

Coetzee called up for Hockey World Cup

first_img30 May 2014World record goalscorer Pietie Coetzee has made a surprise return to the Investec South Africa women’s hockey team following the withdrawal of double-Olympian Lenise Marais only days before the start of the Hockey World Cup in The Hague.Due to pressing work commitments – and in her typical, low-key fashion – superstar Coetzee, the scorer of a phenomenal 280 goals in 281 test matches, had made a quiet early exit from the World Cup reckoning for the four-yearly showpiece that begins on Sunday for South Africa.However, the enforced withdrawal of Marais this week, following a leg injury, gave Coetzee the chance to come in at a late hour for the event that runs through until 15 June.A pleasant surpriseGoing into her fourth World Cup odyssey, which began in Utrecht in The Netherlands in 1998, Coetzee said before late afternoon training on Thursday that her participation was a pleasant surprise, but it was unfortunate to come following Marais’ sad news.“Yes, I feel for Leno [Lenise], but at the same time it is great to be here,” Coetzee said.“We beat [non-World Cup side] Italy 5-2 in a training game this [Thursday] morning and my fitness is good,” she added.South African captain Marsha Cox, like Coetzee, said she felt for Marais, but welcomed the star striker back into the fold.ExcitingGoing into her fourth World Cup, Cox is a triple Olympian, the same as Coetzee, and is an icon in South African hockey and women’s sport. She said the forthcoming World Cup is a more exciting prospect now than ever before in her career, which began way back in 2001.“It’s even more special in that the men’s tournament is taking place at the same time and at the same venue,” said Cox, now a resident of Amsterdam, who is married to The Netherlands assistant coach Alexander Cox.Cox, who has represented the South African national team in a record 332 test matches, said the spirit in the side is good and preparation for the showpiece event has been productive. Apart from playing Italy, it has included training matches against back-to-back Olympic champions, world number one and 2010 World Cup finalists The Netherlands (0-3) and world number eight Korea (3-0).‘Busy with the details’South African head coach Giles Bonnet declared himself happy with the team’s preparations: “We are just busy with the details now, the small things, prepping for our first match on Sunday and looking forward to it.”The girls in green and gold meet reigning World Cup champions, world number two, and London 2012 Olympic finalists Argentina at 19:45 on Sunday.Unprecedented live broadcastAll the World Cup matches are at South African time (there is no time difference with The Netherlands) and an unprecedented all 76 men’s and women’s games will be televised live on SuperSport, which recently came on board as the South African national men’s team event sponsors.The South African men meet back-to-back Olympic champions Germany in their opener at 10:30 on Sunday.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Join your friends for a low-key Friday night.2020 KEYNOTE SPEAKERSJay HillJay Hill seeks to inspire the less than 2% of us in agriculture to keep fighting for what we believe in. His story started with 10 acres and a 4020 John Deere and is now over 17,000 acres with 120 employees. Jay claims it was not him that grew the farm, it was finding the right team of people to push him deeper into agriculture and the absolute love of it. His message is about tolerance between the farmer and consumer, and gaining understanding between the two sides: the importance of when to share information from the farm and when to listen to the consumer, finding the right time and message to send, and when and when not to respond. Jay wants people to walk out of the room full of energy and fresh ideas that they can use on their operations.Amberley SnyderAmberley shares her experience from living the perfect life to it all crashing in an instant. A rollover accident leaving her paralyzed changes everything. She learns how accepting help and serving others can be such an important part of life. Amberley shows how life knocked her down, but with the help of her family, friends and faith she has worked to “get back on the horse.”ABOUT YOUNG AG PROFESSIONALSOhio Farm Bureau Young Agricultural Professionals are 18 to 35, singles and married, who are interested in improving the business of agriculture, learning new ideas and developing leadership skills.
