St Brigid's Parish Community Association
The Parish Community Association has had to suspend all activities that normally take place in the Parish Centre. In its place we operate a PCA Google Group where we can connect with each other as to what is happening and where you can find links to items of parish news, on-line activities and a miscellany of matters of interest. We have over 120 members. If you would like to join please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some activities now take place by way of zoom meetings including Tin Whistle classes each Tuesday at noon and a Short Story Group each Friday at 11.00 am. Everyone is welcome to join. If you are interested please email email@example.com. Please note that there is a cover charge for the Tin Whistle classes.
The Parish Community Association (PCA) aims to provide opportunities for leisure activities, friendship and contacts for adults of any age with free time to spend.

When we are able to resume we will introduce some new activities including:
Chair Yoga with Collette Gaffney an excellent way for older adults to loosen and stretch painful muscles, reduce stress, and improve circulation. It also reduces anxiety, helps lower blood pressure, protects joints, and builds strength and balance.- Wednesdays at 11.15am .
Scrabble Club first and third Tuesday of the month at 10.00am .
Gardening Club second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 10.00am.

For some of our activities we ask for contributions to cover the costs of our instructors.
We have a sub-group of younger members who are willing to help any member who needs support with anything over the current troubling times. To avail of such assistance please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07711353671.
