Together Again…

On Tuesday 15th Septmber, when Three Ways Luncheon Club would have met in the community centre, our lovely ladies who felt comfortable to attend went along to the Canal Court Hotel for a spot of lunch and a bit of craic.
It was fantastic to see them together again as a group. Through these challenging times, Patricia has only been able to link in over the phone and call with them individually.
Thanks to the Canal Court Hotel & Spa for their hospitality, the ladies certainly enjoyed themselves.
We look forward to seeing all the ladies again soon.

Summer Scheme 2020

August 2020, saw the annual summer scheme take place for Three Ways Youth Club. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t on our side and things were too late to cancel so the association made the decision to move some activities inside whilst adhering to all guidelines (hand sanitising, social distancing were possible, cleaning of equipment and services etc) with the centre being well ventilated.

A great week was had by all young people who attended. It was great to see their smiles and hear laughter, something the building has been missing for months.
Our thanks to the NR Health Subgroup for funding the physical activities aspect of the week as well as the fruit and water. Our thanks also to Nerf WARS NEWRY, Go Fly Your Kite, Belfast community circus school, Paula O’Hare and Cathal Fegan Schools of Tae Kwon-Do.

A few photos to share of a great week. All young people the whole week and we look forward to seeing them all at the youth club.
