Members Meeting This Month

Posted by Shan on July 8, 2011 at 7:25 PM

   Hello to everyone who has joined the Campaign. We have  increased our membership  a  lot this year, mainly thanks to  the great posters designed by kids around Windy Arbour and Clonskeagh.

The good news is that Dun Laoghaire County Council has a new Chairman, a Fine Gael Councilllor, who has stated that one of his priorities in this financial year is to increase the amount of money the council spends on playgrounds. DLR Co Council has already recognised that we need better play facilities for children  near Windy Arbour. Now it is up to us to convince the Council to take some action.

   Some Campaign members are planning to meet up on one evening in September to plan our strategy going forward.  One meeting place we've used already is the Dropping Well Pub. 


If you would like to come along to a meeting to discuss our future strategy,  let me know.

Best, Shan

First or second Tuesday  in the month at around 8.30pm?

We have more than 16 new members who are actively backing this campaign online and lots more supporters who are not great with the Internet, sothey have not yet managed to join up online. We are hoping to have more face to face meetings with local people this Autumn to help us build more local support for a playground in Dublin 14. Let me know if anyone has any ideas for offline activities to get our messages across and to help us get backing from all the communities in Clonskeagh, Milltown, Windy Arbour, Churchtown, Dundrum, Rosemount and Goatstown.

Our First Members meeting took place at The Dropping Well in July and We've formed a Committee to try to Clarify exactly what kind of playground we want. We will also be looking into what Dun Laoghaire County Council is prepared to do to help us and talking to other local councils and private and public sector bodies and NGOs about funding. We need to identify our three top sites and we want to present a plan to members at apublic meeting later this year for how we can achieve our goals. The good news is that DLR wants to improve play facilities so it is up top us to show that people in Churchtown, Milltown, Windy Arbour and Clonskeagh really want a playground.
