History book — the printing of a Sandy Row history book based on a local family could become a reality within two years, according to the Donegall Road History Group.

The idea is to produce it in short sections using a manuscript already in existence which was produced by the late Gordon Freeman. Each section would appear on a dedicated website or as hard copy at a local venue.

In order to make the project possible, the history group is seeking a volunteer proof reader — a retired school teacher or newspaper journalist would be ideal. Tel: 9029 2631 for details.

Walking tour — the Blackstaff Way walking tour continues from the Welcome Centre, Donegall Place, every Saturday at 11am.

The tour takes in part of Sandy Row including the famous Boyne Bridge. Tickets cost £6 and are available at the time of the tour from the staff inside the Belfast Welcome Centre.

Good news club — the Good News Club at Fane Street Primary School, held each Thursday from 2pm until 2.45pm, will give children the opportunity to learn sign language in easy stages as they go through the alphabet, linked to games, craft work, singing and bible stories.

Please contact the school on Tel: 9038 1945 for more information.

St Patrick’s Day — Sandy Row is getting closer to the big day when people there hope to turn ‘the Row' green for St Patrick's Day.

A parade is being planned to start at the bottom of Blythe Street.

Family meetings — Tyndale Reformed Church, Donegall Avenue, has organised a series of Sunday evening family meetings at 6.30pm discussing the Old Testament tabernacle in the wilderness.
