Last night at 6pm Councillor Richard McCarthy announced St Agnes and Gugh officially 'rat-free'! 

We held a community party to thank everyone for assisting the project so far. Five Islands School sang a song about seabirds, we had a delicious buffet including ‘project hat cake’ and fireworks.   

Thanks for everyone’s help with the project so far.  Here is to the next two years of the project and beyond!
