Coffee Morning 4th October 2021

The October Coffee Morning was a joy as always, with two clear areas of chat on this occasion – the first being achievements and the second regarding easing of Coronavirus restrictions.

Coffee Morning 6th September 2021

As usual, the conversation at the Havin’ a Laugh Coffee Morning was full of variety. Most of the conversation centered on things we do in our spare time, from kayaking, to painting, to travelling and, of course, seeing as it was a morning with only women, online shopping.

Coffee Morning 9th August 2021

A wide variety of topics were discussed at this month’s Coffee Morning, with the majority of the conversation about available Mental Health services. We also had a visit from Riona Rochford from the Volunteer Centre in Sligo, who had lots of great information on Volunteering. Inevitably, given the fact that we are Irish, the coffee morning started with a chat about the weather.

Coffee Morning 5th July 2021

July’s Havin’ a Laugh Coffee Morning was another morning well spent. Lots of issues were discussed in the informal yet informative chat. The thing that struck me about this coffee morning and the last is that everyone is always respectful of one another during discussions.

Coffee Morning 14th June 2021

Through our monthly chats on our online coffee morning we are often inspired by the topics that come up. These topics can range from the joys of being a pet owner, the pros and cons of parachute jumping and some personal stories are shared with messages that have helped us all. In our blog we share those pieces that made us smile or think for a while. We hope they might inspire conversations of your own.
