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.
