Santa and SVP Collection

Monday 13th December

The Ballinlcea Heights SVP annual collection will take place on Monday 13th December (weather permitting). If you wish to donate, SVP will accept food and money. Same as the previous years.

To assist with Covid-19 concerns we ask that all items are bagged together for donation. This can either be handed over or left out for contact free collection. *Loose items not in a bag cannot be collected*

If you would like to drop your donation to us during the course of the day then you can drop it to #187. We won’t be able to facilitate accepting donations after 5pm (ish) on the 13th.

Let us know ahead of time if you want a Santa visit. Naturally we’ll be making a list. PM Stephen with your details as per the message sent on the What’s App Group.

We’ll be making the event as Secure as possible for everyone. So unfortunately that means no Carol Singing. But they’ll be back next year.!!! (Hopefully)

Wishing you all a very Happy and Healthy Christmas!

Skip Day Saturday 11th September 2021

Skip Day 2021 is confirmed for the 11th of September! 2 X 20 tonne skips have been ordered.

The first skip will be from 8am to 11am. Located beside Number 80.

The second will be from 8am to 11am and located in the Cul De Sac by Number 187.

In line with Covid-19 restrictions, access to the skips will be strictly supervised. In the first instance you must be a paying member of the association and secondly only one family unit can place items in the skip at any one time. Please maintain social distancing and keep your visit to the skip as brief as possible.

We require that you co-operate with all instructions that are issued during the morning. We also ask that residents don’t drop items off before and leave with the expectation that someone else puts it into the skips. Remember that only items broken down to their smallest parts will be accepted.

NB A list of active subscriptions will be cross checked before permission is given to access the skip.

Updates will be shared on the Estates WhatsApp group including when the skip has been physically dropped off. If you are not already a member then email: ballincleaheights@gmail.com to be added. Include your house and phone numbers.

Look forward to seeing you on the 11th September!

Covid-19 Response

To assist our Community the Residents Association is coordinating a response that will ensure the following:

  1. Elderly, sick or infirm have food delivered.
  2. Prepared cooked meals are provided to you if you are unwell and unable to cook for yourself or family.

What can you do?

  1. Ensure you are in the Community WhatsApp group – apply via ballincleaheights@gmail.com
  2. Contact Stephen @0863108639 if you don’t have internet access
  3. Inform the commitee of any person you think we should make contact with

How to request assistance?

Use the above contact details and send in your requirement. Try to anticipate your needs as best as possible. The committee will then match you with a volunteer.

This pandemic may pass us by and we will wonder what to do with all the toilet paper or we all may end up unwell at different times. Everybody is willing to help. So let’s look out for one another and don’t think twice about seeking help!

Ballinclea Fireworks!
