Residents looking to set up a new text alert scheme

A Community Text Alert information evening being held in Askea Parish Centre for the residents of Dolmen Heights, Sherwood, Laurel Park, Burrindale and Brooklawns is just the "first phase for the Pollerton area". 

The meeting will be held on Thursday, November 15 at 7pm. 

Organiser, Adrian Perks, said: "This is the first phase of setting up a Community Text Alert for the Pollerton area of Carlow, other estates will be canvassed and can be added to the group. 

"As Askea Parish Centre only holds a limited number of people, it would be impossible to hold an information meeting for the wider Pollerton Area in one go, therefore it will have to be in stages.

"If there are any Residents' Associations in the Pollerton area who want to contact either myself, Adrian Perks at pollertontextalert@gmail.com, Sergeant Conor Egan or Garda Liam Kavanagh of the Community Policing Unit in regards to this or have an interest in joining the text alert that would be great and welcomed."
