Christmas Remembrance Tree
Owing to the year it has been and with restrictions in place, we have decided to put up a Christmas Tree near the walking track.  2020 has been a difficult year for a lot of us, not being able to visit Family and Friends as often as we would have liked – due to the restrictions. We only hope this Covid 19 pandemic will pass soon.  But we know how tough Christmas can be by the absence of family and friends, who either have sadly passed away or who we can’t visit at present.  We would like to invite you all to place your ‘Remembrance Star’ on the tree.  In memory of loved ones past or present.  The Stars are available to pick up from Tallys Shop FREE of charge.
Also help us add some Christmas spirit to the track, by designing and decorating some Christmas baubles to hang on the Laurel trees.  Or if you want to be even more creative you can come up with your own ideas.  We can’t wait to see them all.

Christmas Club Shop Update
Part of our Christmas club shop order has arrived from O’Neills.  We plan to complete what orders we can and be in contact with any fully completed orders via email or phone to arrange collection.  The remaining orders will be completed by the second week of December and again we will be releasing details to arrange collection of this merchandise once our shop sub committee get all orders bagged up and ready to go.  For anyone who missed out on ordering some of our ‘new’ gear we will be carrying a very small amount of stock but we hope to release this via our online shop as soon as this stock becomes available.  This will be on a first come first served basis so don’t miss out.  All other items we have in stock are available for immediate collection.  We thank everyone for their continued support to our club via our club shop.

HSE – Minding Your Wellbeing Programme
Minding your Wellbeing is an evidence-based programme that aims to provide simple tools and guidance to develop and maintain a positive outlook by looking after our mental health and wellbeing.  The Programme consists of five videos (Approx. 20 mins long) which cover the themes:
Practicing Self-care – Explores the idea of individual’s ‘self-care’ and encourages participants to build their own ‘self-care toolkit’ which includes healthy habits for our mental health and wellbeing
Understanding Our Thoughts – Invites participants to reflect on their own thinking and consider how thinking patterns can impact wellbeing.
Exploring Emotions – Encourages participants to notice their emotions and increase their positive emotions to improve their wellbeing.
Building Positive Relationships – Discusses ways in which participants can nurture, value, and foster positive relationships which are so important for mental wellbeing.
Improving Our Resilience – Invites participants to build their resilience, learn about the building blocks of resilience including the importance of focussing on strengths.
Videos of all five themed areas are available to view HERE – HSE MINDING YOUR WELLBEING
