Inniscarra Community Centre needs you!

Do you want Inniscarra Community Centre at Ballyanly to continue to develop and to be there for your children and their future children? Do you consider the Community Centre to be an essential community asset and, if so, how often do you or your family come to the centre? The Community Centre needs your help and support. We do not have enough people involved to allow us do what we need to do, and we need a helping hand. Don’t leave the responsibility to others, a little help goes a long way, and failure to maintain and secure the future of the centre may see the demise of the facilities. The current facilities, held in trust for the people of Inniscarra, include a Community Hall that accommodates 400 people with meeting rooms, stores and workshop, an 18 hole pitch and putt course and clubhouse with dressing rooms for the Camogie Club, an all-weather pitch with lights, a community pitch for GAA/Camogie, a rugby pitch with lights, two soccer pitches and dressing rooms, a lighted Sli Na Slainte walkway. new children’s playground and extensive parking availability The facilities have to be maintained to a standard to meet increasing regulations. Currently, day-to-day upkeep and maintenance is carried out by one Community Employment Programme worker and secretarial tasks by another C.E.worker on very limited hours. All other work done is due to a few voluntary workers. Owing to the efforts of the current volunteers we find ourselves debt free at this time, but we need your input and ideas to take us to the next level and to ensure that we have a facility to hand on to our children. If you have any interest in ensuring that the centre survives, please contact the office on (021) 733 2211 to offer your support and help. Helping does not mean that you have to join a committee or commit to attending meetings. There are many ways in which one can help, it can be as simple as giving 15 minutes when it suits you. So, what are you waiting for? Get involved, your help will make it a better place for you and your children, so let the community benefit from your skills and make new friends.
