Come along to the Brockagh Centre for a browse on March 6th for our monthly Car Boot.  Many people find this a great way to clear out their home and make some money in the process while having a social day out. Bargains are always available from home baking, plants, clothes, movies, cd’s, books & antiques etc. Whatever you are looking for, you are sure to find it at the Glendalough car boot sale. Vans must be booked in.  Book indoor spaces early but if you would rather be outside just show up in the morning at 8am. Contact the Brockagh Centre on 0404-45600.

Draft Wicklow County Development Plan 2016-2022                                                                                      

Wicklow County Council have left the Draft Wicklow County Development Plan in the Brockagh Centre for the community to view. You are welcome to call in Mon to Fri 9am to 5pm or on a weekend if the Centre is open. There are two volumes to look through but they cannot be removed from the centre because we have only one copy of each.

Tuesday morning at the Brockagh Centre 

 If you are over 55 and looking for somewhere to go on a Tuesday morning 11am -12.30 we offer weekly exercise classes, outings, lunch outings, computer training and personal development. We are constantly looking at new activities.  Phone Pauline on 0404-45600 for a chat or drop in any Tuesday.

Men’s Shed

We are hoping to start up a men’s shed. A Men’s Shed is a dedicated, friendly and welcoming meeting place where men come together and undertake a variety of mutually agreed activities. These sheds are open to all men regardless of age, background or ability. It is a place where you can share your skills and knowledge with others, learn new skills and develop your old skills. If you are interested in getting involved contact Pauline on 0404-45600.
