Knockavilla Community Council notes

With the long winter nights now on top of us, it is worth keeping in mind the importance of Community Alert. The importance of being vigilant in our community cannot be underestimated. Also, especially at this time of year it is important to regularly check in with our elderly neighbours to ensure they have sufficient fuel supplies, and that they can access the local shops for their food and medical supplies. It is also very important to be alert and take note of any vehicle registrations that may not be usual to an area. This way we can keep our community safe for the winter months.
