Successful afternoon at Acre Day

A very successful Afternoon at the ACRE was held on Sunday 20th May. The event opened with a blaze of sunshine and drew a steady flow of visitors over the three hours. This is the second year of the event which is held in collaboration with the Celbridge Creative Group. Visitors had the opportunity to listen to the songs and music of the Celbridge Youth Gospel Choir, join in a number of interactive workshops and visit the stalls of a number of local artists and crafts.

For the young people there was an opportunity to visit the pet’s corner and have their faces painted. For many visitors the excellent value and quality of plants on sale was an opportunity to take home bedding and arrangements for the garden and porch. Tea and coffee was available for those who wished to make an afternoon of it and sit around, listen to the music and have a chat in a relaxing and peaceful environment.

Many thanks to all the volunteers and to those who provided so many cakes and buns for the cake stall. The ACRE is a community based project and all enquiries are welcome for the use of the facilities. Please contact Ken at
