Three Ways Community Association, based in the St, Patrick’s Ward Area of Newry has been providing a range of support, programmes, and events for their residents throughout the covid restrictions with the support of the Department for Communities, Neighbourhood Renewal, Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, John Moore’s Foundation, Southern Health & Social Care Trust, Education Authority and Confederation of Community Groups.

A special delivery for one happy resident from Threeways Community Association.

The energetic community association provided families who have been financially impacted by covid-19 with food vouchers, fresh meat vouchers, hygiene products, electricity, and mobile top-ups to ensure the financial strain was kept to a minimum during these surreal times. 

As well as this, the association put on several exercise and educational classes through zoom for residents within their own homes, including Zumba, martial arts, MetaFit and Irish dance for fun, spring planting, lettuce and potato planting and art workshops to bring families together, reduce isolation, support older residents and to allow both young and older to try something new or different.  With all of this, the association also delivered story telling for children within the area as well as the children from Windmill Playgroup.  Adults were also given the opportunity to develop new skills and participate in a first aid programme or join in on weekly online community bingo were the association supported local businesses by purchasing vouchers as winning prizes to financially support local traders. 

The Easter Bunny was busy at Three Ways

More recently, on Friday 2 April, the community association hosted an Easter Bunny & Friends event for the families of the area were each child got to meet the easter bunny and his friends, receive a gift and treat and enjoy an event in a safe space.  The event was attended by over 110 children and was major success, all whilst ensuring social distancing.  On the same day, the association also deliver Easter treats and gifts to the Luncheon Group within the area who have been unable to meet physically for this past year as a token of friendship and to check in on them. 

Chairperson, Cathy Keenan said the association is appreciative of the support from the funders and the association will do all they can to continue developing and providing for the community “Three Ways CA is delighted to have received financial support from the many different funders to allow us to deliver this effective programme of events and support.  The association continue to deliver for our community, and I have no doubt that our community will be able to benefit from further exciting programmes and events over the coming months, hopefully face-to-face.  The Association has been busy planning and completing funding applications with an outcome due over the coming weeks. Thank you to everyone who has supported the association and our community throughout these surreal times, and we look forward to the better days ahead.”
