|(4/7/2015) Boccia and New Age Kurling - 8 July in Short Strand Community Centre |
The New Age Kurling and Boccia continues in The Short Strand Community Centre this Wednesday 8 July at 7pm.
There was only a small attendance last week but those who attended Bobby Doherty, Helen Chapman, Alan Weir and Eddie McCrory had expert tuition from Odhran and enjoyed very competitive matches in both Boccia and New Age Kurling. Bobby triumphed in the Kurling and Alan came out on top in the Boccia.
The Community Centre again provided us with tea and coffee and a great night was had by those in attendance. Hope to see a big turn out this week.
|(28/6/2015) Update on Sponsored Walk |
The amount raised by the sponsored walk has now reached a magnificent £2,000. A enormous vote of thanks is due to Deirdre Rice for organising to do the walk and nominating the Northern Ireland Polio Fellowship to receive all funds raised by her participation. Deirdre you are a star!
|(25/6/2015) First Night at Short Strand Community Centre Roaring Success |
24 June was a great start for the Fellowship's use of the Short Strand Community Centre. On arrival we were treated to tea and biscuits by the staff at the centre. Odhran Doherty of Disability Sport was on hand with all the equipment needed for Boccia. After a very brief talk through the rules and a few warm up games to get us used to the delivery of the balls we had a game. On team captain William Auld's team were Joe McVeigh, Joe's sister, Ronnie Connolly and Helen Nelson while on tean captain Christine Connolly's team was Alan Weir, Eddie McCrory, Jim Bailie and Heather Scott. The match was highly skilful and umpire Odhran was kept busy by two very competitive teams. Christine's team won through in the end.
While this was going on Bobby Doherty and Breige Torrans were busy improving their Scrabble skills while Alan Hughes and Liam McGrann kept a watchful eye on proceedings. It was a wonderful night.
Next week as well as Boccia and Scrabble we will be playing Kurling so why not come and join us. Make Wednesday night sport night.
A big thank you to Odhran who will be there again next week.
