This week the senior group will be having a party night 8.30pm – 10pm This Friday night the members of the Junior Youth Club will be taking a trip to Downpatrick’s Eclipse Cinema. The movie available for viewing will be PG rated and therefore a parent/guardian must sign a consent form for the children to go. The youth club will be covering the cost of transport – the children will require £3.50 to view the movie and can bring money for their own popcorn etc. The bus will depart the Youth Club on Pat’s Road at 5:45pm and should be back approximately at 9:30pm. Contact Maryann for more details. As the Junior Group will be going away on a trip there will be no Junior Club in the hall on Friday night.
