Hospice Coffee Morning

There will be no Outdoor Coffee Morning on the Green for the Hospice collection again this year.

Instead Hospice Boxes have been left in Roebuck Pharmacy and Lynam’s. These boxes will be in situ until the end of this month.

Blackrock and Harold’s Cross Hospice are very thankful for our support. Please give as generously as you can.
Thanks as always to Mairéad for organising.

We held a collection for Ukraine, and a total of €593.39 was collected.

Santa Visits Roebuck

Due to the reindeer being on a strict training schedule Santa resorted to traveling around our area on an electric bike again this year, hand delivering selection boxes to all the little Roebuckians. We learnt a lot about Santa on this jaunt around the area. For example, did you know he is 1,798 years old? Or that he traveled back to the North Pole on a normal airplane after his visit here? In disguise of course. Good luck on the big night Santa, and see you next year in Roebuck!

Thanks to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Council Council for the funding of this event.

Santa Cycles Roebuck

The man in red is coming back to Roebuck for another whirlwind bike tour on Saturday, late afternoon, December 4th. The reindeer are following a strict training regime and will be on a rest day that Saturday, so he’ll be hand-delivering selection boxes to all the little Roebuckians using his trusty electric cargo bike. Be sure to come out and greet him as he goes by.

His elves have put together an approximate schedule of when he’ll visit each road. You can see that below. The elves have advised us that this schedule is very approximate (he’s far too important to follow rules), but it’ll give you an idea of roughly when to expect him.

Halloween Party!

Halloween Party, 30th November 5 to 7pm

Take the Survey

We are planning a Halloween gathering on Saturday 30th October from 5pm-7pm on the green in front of the shops. We hope you can join us for this gathering and that both kids and adults can make the effort to come in some sort of Halloween attire.

With the times that are in it, we would ask you to please adhere to Covid guidelines. There will be hand sterilisation points around the green that we’d encourage you and your kids to use throughout. As it will be dark at that time, we ask all parents to take full responsibility for their children around road safety, especially around the Farmhill and Larchfield Road junctions.

Please take this very short survey, so that we can gauge numbers:
