Community Services Survey

Community Services Survey

Following on from our application for funding under the Rural Services Scheme in 2017, we unfortunately came up just short in the awarding process.  This however is not the end of the road for our Community Services project. Through our consultation in February last year, and through our feasibility study, we have found that there are service needs for the local community, and the government’s own figures show the area is deprived in terms of proximity to services.
We identified that there is an aging population with 50% of residents over 40 years of age, and accept that the Club has in the past been mainly focused on physical activities enjoyed by our youth. The aims of the Community Services Project is to further identify the social and psychological needs of you the community, what services we can put in place, and what facilities we need to develop in order to provide those services. This can range from book clubs, to farming safety education, to providing a local place for our elderly to socialise and combat isolation.

Please take a couple of minutes to fill in our online survey. If you know someone who does not have access to the internet you could help them fill out the survey also. 

We will make paper versions of the survey available at the club for those who prefer to fill out paper responses. 

AGM 2018

This years AGM will be held on Monday 15th January at the Galeic Centre. Start time of 7:30pm.

Tea and biscuits will be provided, why not come along and listen in or put your ideas accross.

Any burning questions about how the club works, and what goes into it?

Come along and find out.

Any officer positions on the committee come along with free training and courses offered by Derry and Ulster GAA, and work within the voluntary sector is often very desirable. We are very much an open book and help is well appreciated wherever it comes form.

This year we set out upon a new chapter in development at the club, in a bid to make it a warm and welcome place for everyone. In a drive to open our doors to the community as a whole, and tackle issues around physical and mental wellness, we aim to put in place services to combat the issues that a rural community faces in modern times.

Together we can do so much’

Underage Wrapped Up For 2017 

Yes folks, it’s been a great year of football for the youngsters of the parish and we’ve had an extensive program of coaching and learning.

Last night brought to an end this year’s fun for the Christmas break, but I’m sure all the kids can’t wait to get back at it in the new year. 

Below are the p4&5 children at Meadowbank, and below that the P2&3s at the Gaelic Centre. 

Thanks to the coaches and young helpers at this time, and remember folks they are all volunteers.

Keep an eye out on social media for the coaching program starting in the new year, and Merry Christmas to you all. ☃🎄
