ONE YEAR OLD !
On Thursday last, September 19th, our first year in existence was celebrated. It was an excellent day. I would like to thank everyone in the community for all the support we have received. Firstly I would like to express our gratitude to the committee of the Dr Martin Day Centre without whose hard work we wouldn’t be here to-day. To all the members, staff and volunteers of the centre, who make the centre such an enjoyable experience every day. A big thank you to our local musicians and singers, Kevin Nolan, Seán O’Brien, Mgt. Dooley, Gerry Walsh, Bim Connors and Tom Comerford. who make each and every Wednesday such a great experience for all.
Our clients were brought on a trip to Nell’s Cottage in Rathgormuck to celebrate the day, and had a brilliant time, at a venue which we would highly recommend. For lunch, we went to Ó Ceallachains’ in Carrick-on-Suir; the food and service was excellent and great value for money. Planning more days out; watch this space…..
New programmes starting soon are: Flower Arranging classes and Cookery classes. Art classes are starting Tuesday the 8th of October from 2pm; please book as numbers may be limited.
In the Dr Martin Day centre we provide holistic therapies. A complementary therapist and a chiropodist are facilitated for on the premises. Treatments are €15 and booking is essential please call the centre for further information.
An excellent exercise programme is available on Wednesday mornings from 11.30 to 12.30. Our qualified instructor, Darren Loftus, provides a varied and fun approach to physical exercise.
