Stoneyford Active Retirement Group

28 Aibreán 2022

On Monday 25th last the Walking With Friends group headed off to Heywood Gardens for a visit. There was a chilling wind, both literal and metaphorical, blowing form the east but our intrepid walkers braved all. It was an ideal day for walking and the surroundings were breathtaking. One could not have wished for better. The group explored the entire area and even visited the beautiful town of Ballinakill. Unfortunately Ballinakill was not open for business and we adjourned to Bowe’s Foothill and Cafe in Durrow for lunch where there was a lively discussion of our impressions of Heywood Gardens.

Flower Arranging
Stoneyford flower arrangers have taken a rest from their classes but a visit to their homes reveals the results of their creative efforts since the formal and entertaining classes by Eva Holmes were concluded. Everyone is looking forward in anticipation to next seasons classes. Thanks to kcetb for funding the classes.


Short Mat bowls is still in full swing in Stoneyford Community Centre. The fun begins at 10.30 am. every Wednesday morning. What initially seemed to be a very difficult and even confusing game has revealed itself to be a pleasant game with achievable skills and aims. It is a fun morning and anyone interested is welcome to attend.

Fit Club
After a short Covid related hiatus the Fit Club resumes on Wednesday 4 May @ 7.00 pm. All are welcome. The classes as usual are conducted by Séamus Nugent, a good nights workout is guaranteed.


If you fancy a pleasant game of cards feel free to join SARG members on Thursday next afternoon @ 2.30 pm.
