Newcastle Residents Association December 2015
Residents may be surprised at the recent activity in the green area, adjacent to the tennis courts and playground. This has come about as a result of Newcastle receiving a grant from the Council for new pathways, and the upgrading of existing pathways, to facilitate access and wider usage of the area for recreation. The work will be completed before year end. The Association is also working closely with the Council to ensure other issues relating to the infrastructure of the village are addressed. Should you have any views on this please pass them on.
Newcastle scored better than ever in the Tidy Towns competition in 2015. Overall we came fourth out of twenty six entries for Co Wicklow. Great credit to our volunteers and, in particular to Ian Carstairs. See detailed results on our website.
We have had positive discussion with landowners on the development of a Historic Walkway from the village, through Church Lane, returning to the Community Centre. With the help of the National Trails office we hope to access funding from the new Leader Programme to address needs relating to fencing, signage and the upgrading of existing stiles.
