The sun was shining again this year for the Garden Fete in aid of the Four Districts Day Care Centre. 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 a choo-choo train, a chill out kids zone, bouncy castles, a carousel, BBQ and pop-up stalls. Local musicians, the RAMs in Rhythm and the Kangoo jumpers entertained the crowds. Huge congrats to Neville, Christy and their team who put together a fantastic family day out in aid of a great cause.

Griffeen Valley Park Run held its first juvenile run this weekend. The sun shone for the occasion which saw hundreds of children take on a 2k track around the park. The run was supported by local Councillors Vicki Casserly, Emer Higgins and Liona O’Toole.

“It was great to see so many families out soaking up the sunshine at the first ever juvenile Griffeen Valley Park Run. The Park Run’s are a fantastic, volunteer-led, initiative that help promote wellness, fitness and provide a social outlet for local residents. It’s brilliant to see them bringing all those benefits to the lives of children. Well done to all the kiddies who took part in the event, I’m sure we’ve many successful runners-to-be amongst them but we all know, when it comes to running, it’s the taking part that counts,” said Cllr. Emer Higgins who is a General Election Candidate for the area.

“I look out on Griffeen Valley Park from my house and I’m always pleased to see events taking place there. It’s a fantastic public amenity. I’m a beginner runner myself training with Lucan Harriers FitForLife, and my son James and husband Dan are marathon runners, so I know the benefits of running. It’s brilliant to see kids getting involved, if they start early it will help us create a culture of wellness amongst the next generation,” said Cllr. Vicki Casserly who represents the Lucan area.

Lucan District Credit Union this year celebrates its 50th year. To mark the occasion the Credit Union held a prestigious black-tie event in the Spa Hotel. It was attended by many of the original founding members, Mayor Paul Gogarty and Councillors Vicki Casserly and Emer Higgins.

“I was honoured to attend the Lucan District Credit Union’s 50th anniversary Ball this weekend with my colleague Cllr. Vicki Casserly. Its CEO Paula Maguire sure knows how to throw a party. I’d like to formally congratulate Chairman Enda Lee, Vice Chair Mary O’Neill, Operations Manager Pat Derwin, all the staff, board and founding members on a fabulous celebration and 50 successful years supporting families and charities across Lucan,” said Cllr. Emer Higgins who is a General Election candidate for the area.

“As a member of the Lucan Credit Union I know how valuable a resource it is for our community. On top of the loans they provide to local residents the Credit Union also supports many of us with our fundraising efforts. Lucan Credit Union has been a big supporter of Team James and our Barretstown fundraising, and I was delighted to support them as they marked their 50th anniversary,” said Cllr. Vicki Casserly who represents the Lucan area.
