This week saw the commencement of most of our regular classes and a very busy week in the Clonoe Community Centre diary. On Monday Damian and O’Neill Academy of Irish Dance were back in at 5.30pm and Feetbeat Modern Linedance classes for adults in from 7pm. Both dance classes are still accepting new participants, call in on Monday or contact them directly to discuss.

Libraries NI will also hold a -2-1 eclinic where you can get help with your mobile device, general IT assistance and information on Wednesday 11th from 10am with some timeslots still available – contact Alice 07526834948 to book.

Aside from these activities and day to day business, Clonoe Rahilly’s had their normal busy schedule and Lifestyle Fitness autumnal classes have commenced.

As well as the classes resuming, we have been in discussion this week with SWC in relation to delivering the SUSE (Step Up to Sustainable Employment) programme and courses locally and Sensée regarding opportunities for local people to work from home employed by an organisation with high regard for ethical employment. We also met with NIHE and hope to introduce more events for adults to meet up and reduce social isolation and loneliness. This will be a new approach to ‘friendship’ clubs with the focus on the people rather than activity.

Later on, in Autumn we will be introducing some new healthy eating workshops with practical demonstrations and discussion. Following the series of digital workshops with Libraries NI, we will be holding further classes and eclinics. More details of all these nearer the time.

The other three regular activities which will restart soon are –

Serenity Yoga Gentle Hatha Yoga classes with Bernie Hanna (YFNI approved tutor) on Wednesday 11th September starting at 7pm– 02887740601/07749845339.
