Community Spirit1

Tidy Towns in Edgeworthstown, like many organisations, relies on volunteers from the area and the goodwill and support of those who live here. For the most part we are ordinary souls putting a little bit back into our community – and it’s one aspect of things that maybe doesn’t come across enough when volunteering gets mentioned – the social aspect. It can make you new friends and open up new horizons in your life. This was emphasized most vividly in recent times when we learned that one of our group of volunteers had recently written and published a book. A novel, set in his native Scotland. The book is called Witch and it’s available on Amazon.   Lorne Patterson has been married a living in the Parish for many years and both he and his wife Beatrice are actively involved in the Tidy Towns. Lorne launched his book in Longford Library on the 14th June last, proceeds of the night going the the Longford Women’s Link, where Lorne formerly worked. We wish Lorne every success with his book and hope he will publish more.
