Charged Up for Change! Expo

Charged up for change logoCharleville Castle will have a stand at the Charged up for change! Expo this weekend, why not come along and meet some of our volunteers who will be able to give you information on events that are happening at Charleville Castle this year and what we’ve managed to achieve so far! A great way to meet the people that are involved with Charleville Castle.

Charged Up for Change! will be on May 14th and 15th, 1am – 6pm at Bloomfield House Hotel, Mullingar.

Charged Up For Change! at Bloomfield House Hotel highlights the work of individuals and groups making positive local and global change. Come enjoy a unique experience of art, music, science and technology, cuisine, activism, athletics, dance, and all the other countless ways people in Mullingar make a difference. The EXPO is May 14th and 15th, 2011, 11 AM-6 PM in Bloomfield House Hotel. The Expo will last from 11-6 with guest speakers and workshops.

The EXPO is organized by Westmeath Volunteer Centre with sponsorships from local businesses and donations from many local businesses. We’d like to thank all those involved in making this event happen and giving many people the opportunity to see how they can get involved in many of the activities in the local community, or how they might use their own imaginations to create social change in unusual ways.

Project Lift – Update,.. We’re there!?

It’s been awhile coming but we can finally say, we’re there! After a phone call from Dudley on the site yesterday we can safely say every bit of the buildings, including the sewage treatment system, have been removed from the port tunnel site of Limerick. It’s an important milestone in this project, it marks the transition from work in Limerick to organising and sorting materials that have been transported off site to storage areas and to the Castle grounds.

We’ve still got a big job ahead of us but the first part is just about done with only some site clean up left, very soon we’ll be sitting down to planning and getting us through a busy summer, we have Shakefest comming up soon and Castlepaloozawon’t be far behind it!

A busy summer for sure, hope we’ll see plenty of familar and new faces around the Castle during the summer and when we start the next part, ground prep and of course finally putting up the buildings!
