This will be part of the Turman Festival and a chance for people to submit their views on anything they would like to see available in the Haven Community house.

The Haven community house was set up in Ferdia Park and the youth club developed from that project.

The Haven is a centre where people can hold meetings and socialise and children can come and play under the supervision of adults.

The house was provided by Louth County Council and is run by a local voluntary committee.

There are also two community employment workers from Youth Work Ireland Louth attached to the house.

The whole thing started when members of the council met with members of the Ferdia Park summer project and the tennants association.

The Haven is a wonderful project and deserves everyone’s support. The children get certificates which record what they have achieved on any one programme and above all they get a greater self-confidence and self esteem.

In The Haven, and the youth club in particular, the committee are trying to extend the services available to the youngsters.

It was planned that some of the older boys and girls hope to do youth leadership training through Youth Work Ireland.

This promises to be a great day and a great relaunch so come along and enjoy the day.
