The sun was shining again this year for the Garden Fete in aid of the Four Districts Day Care Centre. Cllr. Emer Higgins who attended the event said, “It was great to see so many people out supporting the fundraiser and enjoying the sunshine. This year’s event was bigger than ever with the fire brigade, super heroes, bouncy castles, a carousel, BBQ and pop-up stalls. Local musicians, the RAMs in Rhythm entertained the crowds.” The Day Care Centre is a fantastic amenity for the older members of our community where they gather to socialise with others in a warm and friendly atmosphere. There is regular daily group activities to stimulate body and mind plus occasional days out.

Clients can avail of special services such as hairdressing and exercise programmes to keep bodies and minds active and we now have physiotherapy and reflexology available. “The Garden Fete has been an annual family event for many years in Rathcoole. Thanks to a hard-working team, and massive community support, this event has grown in popularity year on year. There are two more great events planned for Rathcoole in September, Family Fun Day on the 14th and TeenFest on the 21st. I look forward to meeting you all there” said Cllr. Higgins.
