New members were encouraged and a varied programme of events were always organised by the extended committee – including a variety of entertainment, storytelling & comedy, exercises, talks on health, lifestyle and local history. Information sessions with a Neuromuscular Therapist, The Youghal Citizen Advice Group, Crime prevention Officer, activities such as gardening with pots/baskets, Christmas floral demonstration, St Bridget Crosses with local rushes, learn to play bingo, whist and scrabble, jewellery making and ceramic craft proved very popular as did a weaving project with Ms Howick’s 3rd and 4th class pupils from Ballintotas N.S. Knitting 350 mini stockings for Rapid Response fundraising was a challenge. With the great facilities available at the Community Centre, the programme changes each year.
Bus trips are organised on a regular basis for members to Music & Drama Shows, Leahy’s Open Farm & Museum, Booley House Ballyduff, Cork City for Over 60’s Final, Queenstown Story Cobh, DJ Murphy’s Kilumney for floral demonstration, and a Tea Dance in Araglin, Garden Centres and many more. Shopping trips to Mahon, Ballincollig, Blarney and Dungarvan.
We hold a Mass for our deceased members each November in the Community Centre. This is a very special day for us each year, we invite relatives of the deceased member to attend and we have refreshments afterwards and sometimes the relatives are amazed at the different activities that take place at the Tuesday Club and they finish each meeting with tea/coffee and locally make scones.
We don’t have any lofty ambitions or goals but are always open to suggestions.
New members from our local community are always made welcome. For information please contact any of the below committee.
