Active Retirement

Active Retirement Group meets every Tuesday 10.45am – 12pm at the Brockagh Centre. So if you fancy a chat, a cuppa and some light exercise, dancing and music come along on a Tuesday morning. Our monthly lunches are back too every 2nd Tuesday of the month. We’d like to encourage anyone who loves arts & crafts or any other hobby, maybe you’ve learned new skills and would like the space to practice and share your skills with other members, come along and join us. We always welcome new members to join our group. In the next few weeks we have arranged a Flower Arranging Workshop, Card Making Workshop & Chair Yoga.

We are going on a day trip to Dublin Zoo on Tuesday 2nd May and there will be no group meeting at the centre that day. Ray Cranley will be singing for us here at the centre on 9th May and we will be going for our monthly lunch afterwards joined by our friends from Sunbeam.

Laragh Glendalough Tidy Towns

Seating

We are installing two more seats in the village soon. One seat at the playground by the Brockagh Resource Centre and another in the village.

Community Garden

Our community garden is looking for a new home as our term has finished in it’s current location in the centre of the village. We can not thank Caroline McCoy enough for her kindness and generosity over the past many years in allowing Tidy Towns to initiate the village’s first community garden on her land, the community appreciates the gift you gave to us all. The community garden has seen many long term and new residents get together to grow and socialize with their families in a positive way while learning and sharing food produce. If you can provide a space for our new community garden in a central location please contact us at laraghglendaloughtt@gmail.com.
