Glenisland National School - New Role!
Glenisland Community Council would like to inform residents of Glenisland of their intention to turn the disappointment of the closure of our local school into a positive by using the premises as a focal point for the community. The best way we see fit to do this is to distribute a survey to all houses in the area. Using this survey we intend to put in place the requests of the community as best we can. We would appreciate everyone's co-operation in getting this project up & running as soon as possible. It is of the utmost importance to get as much feedback as possible as our aim is to build a community spirit that we can all be proud of. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.
