Friday Nights are Family Nights at Holy Trinity Community Centre!!

Hello Everyone !!!

We are a group of people made up from mums, dads, young adults and members of the parish.

Our mission is to get the youth of the parish plus their friends and families together by using our wonderful community centre.

Having spoken to my own children and their friends, we all thought it would be a great idea to have somewhere to meet up, enjoy each others company and have a few laughs along the way!!  Having met up a couple of times at the centre and put together all our views, we have presented them to the parish committee and they have given us the go ahead.  Our only request to help these nights a success is that all under 16 year olds must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

We have been granted the use of the centre on various Friday nights starting on August 5th 2011.  This night will be classed as a ‘Family Quiz Night’.  Also on the night there will be the use of the pool table, table tennis table, the use of the school field for football etc, tuck shop and we will also be selling hot dogs!!!   Yum Yum !!! 🙂 Also another bonus …………….. the bar will be open…Yippee!!!

Please come along and support us from 7.30pm onwards and have a lovely family night with friends.  You never know you might win the quiz!!  So get your thinking caps on and I will see you there!!  xxx

Social Enterprise Plan for Youth and Family Night at Holy Trinity Community and Partnership Centre.

Vision and Mission

To get the youth of the Parish together with each other and their families by providing facilities for them to use.

Keeping people together post-primary school when children move away to different schools.

Overview of Youth and Family Night

A social gathering with activities for families and young people; pool, table tennis, wii, sports on the field, music night, quiz night, talent night, film/football night.

With tea and coffee facilities and the bar if possible.

WHY?

There is currently a gap within our community for a project like this one, we want to develop community cohesion. We want to build on what we already have and make it better.

Vision for 1 year

We want to be able to provide regularity, guarantee it will be open every week (taking prior bookings into account), we would like to see more people involved at the meeting and organising stage, more volunteers coming through. We want to see families and young people using it regularly to meet with each other.

Vision for 5 years

We would want there to be new people emerging to take over or get involved in running the evening, we would hope that it would be a regular place for families in the Parish to meet and for young people to meet with their friends.
