For information and details of application please email glendaloughheritageforum@gmail.com.

Bright Stars (Toddler and Baby Group)

We had a great gathering this week at The Brockagh Centre, nearly 20+ ‘bright stars’ attended their weekly get-together and had fun with a mixture of lovely treats and danced to ‘head shoulders, knees & toes and the ‘hokey pokey’. ‘Moo Music’ will be here 14th June and our last get together will be 28th June - Leonard from First Aid Ireland will be giving a short Pediatric talk.

Thank you all for your continued weekly attendance, it keeps our group interesting and a great way to make friends and keep in contact with each other.
