Are you looking to get the most out of your retirement?

If so, you’re in the right place! We are a group of retired people who enjoy socialising and living life to the full. New members are always welcome!

Our group meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings (4.30pm-7.30pm) in the function room of St.Mary’s Community Centre in Newgrange, Co.Meath.

 

About The Young Ones

The Young Ones active retirement group was formed by a┬álocal group of┬árecent retirees who found that there weren’t a whole lot of organised activities in the local area for people who enjoyed getting out of the house and meeting people. It wasn’t long before the idea of an active retirement group was the talk of the community and, thanks to the help of many, The Young Ones held their first gathering on July 21st 2003 in St. Peter’s National school.

Membership started small but soon grew with word of mouth the greatest tool in a community such as ours. There wasn’t a chance meeting in the local shop or church in which The Young Ones didn’t come up in conversation. As interest and membership grew, we moved out of the national school and into the Community Centre. This facility now provides us with much more opportunity to offer a wider range of activities and we are very grateful to the management of the Centre for accommodating us as much as they do.

Our members currently range from 55 to 96 years of age and come from a wide variety of backgrounds. We have wheelchair access throughout the centre and there is sufficient parking for anyone who needs it.

New members are welcome throughout the year so drop by any day and check us out! You’ll be made to feel very welcome and there’s always a nice cup of tea or coffee on the go. So, don’t delay – join today!

So, the next time that you’re sitting at home when you’d rather be out and about meeting new people and enjoying a range of fun activities….Put on your coat and come on down!

Activities Schedule

Our activities schedule changes from month to month but there are a number of firm favourites that make the cut each month as our members enjoy them so much that we’d have a riot on our hands if we decided to remove them from the running order.

Membership Information

membership2 Our membership process is very simple! Just pop along to the Newgrange Community Centre between 4.00pm-4.30pm any Monday, Wednesday or Friday and look for our Sign Up desk.

There is no membership fee per se but we ask that all members help us to fundraise as and when the opportunity presents itself. We keep fundraising events to a minimum but they are a necessary part of our life to ensure that we can continue to offer the wide variety of activities that we do today.

Note: We currently have a fun competition running whereby all members are entered into a draw for a very special trip (for 2). To be in with a chance of winning, make sure that you’re a fully signed up member by Dec 18th.

Good Luck to Everyone! :)
