THE Manager of Newtownabbey Borough Council’s parks and cemeteries, Margaret Lindsay, was the guest speaker at Mossley Women’s Institute’s April meeting.
Margaret gave a talk about the many parks and cemeteries in the borough, covering a variety of subjects including the number of staff employed in the parks department, routes for walks and seasonal floral displays and planting. Members learned that there is a five-year waiting list for allotments, but that a proposed new allotment in the New Mossley area should ease the problem.
Lydia Finlay won the competition ‘A Flower Arrangement in a Teacup’, with Ann Graham coming second. Essie Kerr won the ballot.
The next meeting will be on Thursday, May 2 in Mossley Parish Church Hall. The guest speaker will be from Asda.
New members/visitors will be made most welcome.
