Emy Belles was formed so that ladies would have a chance to socialise, further their
education & realise their full potential through learning & self development.
It is open to all ladies irrespective of class, creed or culture. It is not confined
to ladies in the Emyvale area, we welcome members from all areas. Its success depends
on all members taking part in talks, courses & demonstrations. As a result, our aim
is that they will enjoy a fuller & more involved life.
Bluebells: A quantity of 200 Bluebell bulbs has arrived from Mr. Middleton, Dublin.
It was decided at a recent Emybelles meeting to plant these bulbs underneath trees
on the riverbank in Emyvale village. With the assistance of a worker from the local
Community Employment Scheme, it is intended to plant the Bluebells on Wednesday morning
next 23rd November at 11.00am. It isn't a friendly fairy that made this project happen
but that of Emybelles Women's Group who have a sense of good community spirit and
wish to make a contribution to the environment. The bluebell is a splendid little
flower and as the name suggests, produces lovely blue bells, loves the shade. They
will make a good splash of colour in the merry month of May. And so it came to pass
- originally intended to happen on Monday but the ground was rock hard and it was
impossible to plant the bulbs. However it was a bit softer on Wednesday and James
Skinnader from the CES helped to dig the soil and plant the bulbs. There to oversee
the process were Anna Watterson, Nancy McCluskey and Geraldine Watterson - Belles
all. We look forward to Spring to see the Bluebells brighten the banks, of the river
of course and our spirits too.
