Spring has sprung and there is a definite spring in our step as the redevelopment of the Ballymun Boiler House site continues at pace. Our trainee programme goes from strength to strength as IKEA hires two trainees. Thinking of spring cleaning your wardrobe? Check out the 2016 sewing and upcycling course schedule. Our latest bike clinic is launched in St Pat's.  We promote our education programmes at the first ever Green School Expo and, finally, we are delighted to be announced as finalists at the Green Awards in the 'NGO of the year' category. All this and more in our March issue. As always, thank you for your support.
