Organiser Martin O’Neill explained: “The purpose of the event is to let the people of Thorniewood know we are here and what we can do to help the area - as well as signposting those who require any advice to the most appropriate organisations.

“We are planning on having three short presentation talks during the day which will focus on mental and physical health and wellbeing, presented by invited guests.

“Should any organisation or individual like a table for the event, please get in touch with us.

“Tables are free and you will be able to bring along flyers, posters and any other information you see fit.

“There is plenty of room for parking and prams and there are no steps as the building is on one level.

“This is an event for the whole community. Please come out and support us, especially if you are involved with a local community group as we would love to see how we can assist, moving forward.”
