October has arrived and brought with it new courses, and events here at Claremont.
Art classes are always popular and tend to become a social event, with Tutor Carol O’Connor steering them back to art. Art Classes take place on Wednesday mornings from 10.30am to 12.30pm
Fitness for over 50’s will start on the 15th October at 10.30 in the morning. This course is aimed at those who take no exercise at all. It will be a gentle start to get everyone up and moving, along with some cognitive exercises to keep everyone’s memory as sharp as possible. The course is supported by Athletics Ireland who provided training for the leaders/coaches.
Parkvilla FC are fundraising to improve the junior pitches and we are supporting them by providing a team to take part in the Lip Sync Event on the 14th October. We are also holding a Coffee Morning on Friday 4th October to raise awareness and funds for the Club.
Claremont Stadium is currently working on a biodiversity project, at the Stadium where we have some patches of waste ground. We would love to brighten the area by planting pollinator plants, wild flowers and providing the odd hotel for any passing bugs. This is one of our projects for the next few months, along with holding information events on topics such as upcycling, recycling and how we each can play our part in this fight against climate change.
We are all aware that foster parents improve the lives of children. However, there is a shortage of foster parents and TUSLA (The Child and Family Agency) are holding an information evening on the 10th October in Claremont Stadium at 7pm.
