WORDS FROM ALICE!
A few words from the centre's manager - Alice Kiersey:
John O'Shea from Wateford Local Radio visited the centre on April 30th for an Afternoon Tea Dance, and kept everyone entertained for ages. John has already visited the centre in the past, providing much in popular music from his huge collection of discs, plus mentions and requests on the radio in days following. Same day a contingent from the Lady Lane centre in Waterford City, led by Ann-Marie, arrived for the entertainment and accommodation became somewhat of a problem. Nevertheless, it didn't detract from the great enjoyment. Local members have been visiting Lady Lane on a reciprocal basis.
Feena's Fun programme runs on Tuesday mornings - to keep everyone's minds active. Dancing with Cora and Liz has been a Tuesday afternoon feature, while Darren Loftus gets everyone exercising on Wednesdays from 11.30 to 12.30 pm. Citizens' Advice Bureau will hold a talk here shortly, followed by mobile opticians - Eyes on the Road - , also Josie Gough (Counsellor & Emotional Well-Being).
Then there's our regular Chiropodist - on alternate Wednesdays. Appointment essential for some of these visits. If transport is a problem, telephone the centre any day during open hours - 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.
