Taghmon Family Resource Centre put some spring in everyone's step during their hugely successful Health Awareness Week.
Launch by local GAA star Ian Carty, the community event was set up to promote health awareness and wellbeing through talks, workshops, activities and health checks. People of all ages got involved, including third and fourth class pupils from Taghmon and Caroreigh National Schools who took part in the healthy poster competition. The winners from Taghmon National School were Jada Power, Rebecca Cashin and Leah MaGee while Amber Hornick, Eimear Doyle and Orla Banville were the top artists in Caroreigh.
Members of the community enjoyed ballroom dancing, a healthy coffee morning, tai chi and a breakfast event for meen, among other activities. Members of the Taghmon Family Resource Centre extended their gratitude to their local sponsors who helped to make the event possible.
