The Easter Monday Road Race, happens soon – not too late to volunteer for an hour, my inbox hasn’t exactly been flooding with offers, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Elsewhere in Whitehead……The Old Flower Shop has reopened as a Nail bar and Tanning Salon, we wish them the best of luck.

Pizza Gourmet is now Little Pizzeria, same owners just a new name, but sadly their front door was damaged by vandals over the weekend. It’s a shame to see such behaviour in Whitehead and I would encourage residents to report any such happenings by phoning 101 (the non emergency police number).

The Whistle Stop Cafe is in full swing with their Bistro Nights so call in and see them or phone 028 9335 3899, food looks great.

Whitehead Glasgow Rangers Sunday Club has The Singing Barmaid with Cecil Knox on Sunday 20th March 4-8pm. There’s ballots and  spot prizes and the kitchen is open too. Great music and fun.

County Antrim Yacht Club is holding an Open Day on Easter Saturday (26th March) with taster sessions for those interested. Registration is from 1.30pm and on the water by 2.00pm. A wonderful opportunity for the community and a lovely day out for all ages, not forgetting the now infamous BBQ!

Starting in the Community Centre on Monday 11th April at 7pm is a Christianity Explored Course. An informal course for people who’d like to investigate Christianity, or just brush up on the basics. You don’t need to be religious, it’s a chance to find out more, whilst  meeting new people. This will last for six weeks and is open to everyone so please feel free to come along. More information to follow.

Brighter Whitehead are hard at it these days and the town is looking lovely. The train on Chester Ave has had a revamp, well done BW! If you would like to join the lovely folks keeping our town so beautiful and colourful please get in touch with me and I’ll give you details.

They’ve been nominated again for this year’s Britain in Bloom, who could forget they scooped the Silver in 2014, and won Community Rail Halt Award last year for Whitehead Train Station and came second in Small Town Category. New volunteers are always welcome though, don’t be scared, they are a great  bunch!
