NEW LOCKING SYSTEM TO COMMUNITY & ENTERPRISE CENTRES
We have now installed new locking systems to both the Enterprise & Community Centres. Anybody who already
has keys to any of the facilities can still use these to open the doors. However DO NOT use the key to lock the doors,
just Pull the door out after you and it will lock automatically.
All the external entrance doors now have a KEY PAD. If you regularly use any of the doors we will supply you with a Code
that will give you access any time you need. If you have not already been contacted by us please contact John on 086 2557942
and we will arrange your code. Ideally in a short time this System will eliminate the need for key, saving all a lot of hassle.
Car chargers are currently being installed in Enterprise Centre car park. They will be available for use shortly.
Online, Drive In and Indoor Bingo every Monday at 8pm. To play online, buy your books on Clonberne.ie by 12 noon on Monday. To play in hall or car park, just turn up and buy your books there.
