We're making headlines in the Offaly Topic! What an honour. It has been a week for them.
July 11th 2017 will be a special memory in our minds for many years to come. It was the day that the National Pride of Place judging panel were guests of ours here at the Acorn Project. The Acorn Project has been nominated by Offaly County Council in the community category section.
It was a fantastic day of reflection and remembering for all associated with the project and its journey. The Acorn Project began in 1999 with one room and now has facilities throughout the whole building. The Acorn Project incorporates the All Weather Pitch, The Gym, The Allotments in Shean, the respond house where Teach na nÓg resides. AMETS - Acorn Midlands Education Training Service, The Youth Café, & Youth Action Group.
Whatever the outcome of the prize giving at a national level the Acorn Project stands proud and delighted.
We would like to thank everyone who had any hand, act, part, or gave a second or more to helping us come to this day. We so appreciate everything you do.
The musings, ramblings and general chit chat from the 'wan's' at the Acorn Project. It may be amusing, it may be informative, it may be off the wall, guaranteed it will never be boring ;-) Join us with your comments. Love to hear from you! Just remember, long as it's decent, and we don't have to wash its face, its welcome :-)
