2017 – A very successful year for the Leixlip Youth & Community Centre

2017 has been a very successful year for the Leixlip Youth & Community Centre, and much of what we have achieved would not have been possible without the financial support and funding from a number of sources.  We would like to acknowledge and thank everybody involved.

Thank you to Intel Ireland for funding the start up costs and equipment of our coffee shop, Confey Coffee which has been a huge success since opening in May.

Thank you to Kildare County Council Community Grant scheme which part-funded our Youth Club summer camps, which enabled us to provide a wide range of activities and a day trip at very low cost to parents.

Thank you again to Kildare County Council for a separate Community Grant scheme fund which allowed us to upgrade indoor and outdoor furniture, as well as a new baby change unit for the Centre.

Thank you to Tesco Ireland for including us in their Community Fund which allowed us to purchase a new Xbox and games for our Youth Club.

Thank you to Kildare Wicklow Education Training Board who with funding from the Dept of Children and Youth Affairs awarded us grant funding for a wide range of equipment for our Youth Club – new fridge and freezer for our kitchen, art supplies, pool table recovered and new pool cues, sports equipment including new football goals, portable speakers, milkshake maker, new table tennis table, outdoor storage shed, and lockers.

Thank you to Volunteer Ireland who organised a Team Impact project at the Centre with Celestica who volunteered their employees to completely redecorate our outdoor decking area with new plants, painting and decorating.  Celestica also contributed to the costs associated with the outdoor project.

Thank you to Energia for funding towards our project for replacing existing lighting in the Centre with energy efficient fittings.

The Board of Directors of Leixlip Youth Premises Group Ltd would like to sincerely acknowledge the dedication, hard work and enthusiasm of our Staff and Volunteers throughout the year in the various projects and initiatives outlined above possible.

 

Finally thank you to all in our community who have supported the Centre throughout the years….

Annual Community Open Day – Saturday 18th November 2017

 

The Leixlip Youth & Community Centre will hold its Annual Open-Day on Saturday 18th November from 2pm to 4pm. We will have a Bouncy castle indoors along with toys in the play area for smaller children.  Older children can enjoy the pool table, table- tennis, arts and crafts and iPads. Complimentary tea, coffee & other refreshments will be on offer for the adults. Staff and volunteers will also be on hand to offer advice about the Centre’s facilities as well as having any other relevant information available.

The Centre is also keen that as many people as possible come to sample its fashionable new “Confey Coffee Shop” which continues to go from strength to strength since its opening in May. The coffee shop which was very kindly supported through funding by Intel at its outset, has become very important locally and has become a social hub of its own in the area.

As well as the new café, the youth club equipment has been upgraded, a new X-Box has been purchased with funding from the Tesco Community Fund and KWETB grant.  Most importantly the outdoor seating area has been painted and redecorated, and new furniture purchased. This work has been completed mainly with our own volunteers, help from Volunteer Ireland and Celestica but just as importantly with grant funding from Kildare County Council.

Through all of these initiatives the Centre continues to grow and develop its role in the Community. The fact that 25 groups with activities ranging from classes for kids, to health & fitness, drama & dance, and Citizens Information outreach service shows the importance of that role. Our Youth Centre which is central to our manifesto also continues to go from strength to strength.

At its core this Centre is YOUR Centre. Set up through Community initiative, its function is to provide a valued service assisting the people of Leixlip in anyway it can. Since its inception, we have strived to reach out to the Community and the Open Day provides us with our opportunity to welcome as many people as possible through our doors. Therefore, we invite everyone to come along on Saturday 18th November and see what’s on offer at your local Community Centre.
