‘Art in the Afternoon’ Exhibition Launch for Bealtaine Congratulations to all the participants of the ‘Art in the Afternoon’ programme which runs throughout the winter months at Áras Inis Gluaire. The wonderful exhibition of their work is now on display until the end of May and is well worth a viewing. Call in and have a look around the gallery when you are passing. (Pictured are some of the artists with Joe Murray - Facilitator, Joe Daly – Artist, who officially opened the Exhibition & Lorraine Wilson, Coordinator of the programme.) The Erris Care & Repair Service Spring and Summer are our busiest times of the year and we try very hard to get through all the Job Requests as they come in. Please remember that the people carrying out these jobs are volunteers and are giving their time and commitment to this community service for free. Occasionally, there may be a delay in getting jobs done due to the time and resources that are available to us. However, we endeavour to get to everybody that has asked for help so please be patient. The weather has not been kind to us for most of May but hopefully the sun will begin to shine soon! We work under the guidelines and policies of Age Action Ireland in delivering this very valuable service to the older people of Erris and each year the service becomes more popular. Volunteers are now urgently needed to join the Erris Care & Repair Service team. You should have a positive, caring attitude, a little spare time on your hands and a willingness to help older people in your community with small tasks around the home and garden. We need people with a reasonable level of DIY skills and an interest in helping older people. The time commitment is not large: on average we would hope that you could carry out one to two jobs in a week with each job being approximately two hours. If you are interested and would like further information, please contact Lorraine, Community Officer at Áras Inis Gluaire on 097 81079.
