Parent Survey – HSE 
The HSE wants to hear the views of parents of young children and expectant parents to help shape the development of new resources, including a new website. These resources will support families during pregnancy and children’s early years. To have your say, please complete a short survey using this link. We would really appreciate if you could take the time to complete this, for a very good friend of Canalway ETNS.

Thanks to all who attended the Winter Fair, to all the volunteers who helped out, and to our generous sponsors who contributed raffle prizes and goodies for the cafe. It was a great success. Our next fundraising event will be a Comedy Night at the end of January.
