Moira Friendship Group launched the Autumn programme for 2015 at its Open Day on Tuesday 1 September between 10am and 2.30pm in St John’s Parish Centre, Main Street, Moira.

This independent cross community group operates from St John’s Parish Centre, Main Street, Moira and was established with the aim of promoting Friendship among older people.

It organises a wide and exciting range of activities for those living in Moira and the surrounding area who are 50 years of age and over.

The Autumn programme includes Men’s and Ladies keep fit classes, Vocal Group, Arts and Crafts, Creative Art, Pilates, Armchair Aerobics, Bridge, Bowls, Badminton, various levels of walking groups and many other activities.

Monthly information talks, day trips and social events are also part of what the Group offers, with the aim of satisfying the needs of the community.

Chairperson Sam Loughrey commented ‘Open Day’ will give people the opportunity to see at first hand the range of activities on offer and hopefully they will find something that appeals to them and in turn will enrol as a member.
