Our local Post Office on The Rise is closing today 31st March, 2021. It is going to be a real loss to our community. However the good news is that Adrian Peters is going to keep the newsagents shop open but with some changes. On behalf of all the residents, MMRA would like to thank Adrian for his role of Postmaster and for his 36 years of dedicated service to Mount Merrion.
The Deerpark is reserved every afternoon from 1.30pm to 3.30pm for cocooners and the medically vulnerable to exercise safely.
