The Engine Shed – a report of 25 years.

As many of us know the Engine Shed had to close due to changes in funding structures and policy directions. Several members of the board and others involved in the Engine Shed have worked to write a report of the outcomes of The Engine Shed. Please click here to access this report :




Halloween at Columcille

Columcille’s Halloween party was on on Monday 31st October and was a fun, sometimes scary…………….and lots of laughter


Columcille autumn fayre was on Saturday 8th October from 10.30am – 2pm, in the main hall at Columcille. It was a good social event enjoyed by all present. Sales of craft works, joinery products and garden produce went well and the cafe did a good selection of light lunches and the great range of cakes and baking. Story telling, a raffle, a second hand stall and art exhibition were all enjoyed too.
