Christmas Events to put a smile on your face

We love Christmas here at Claremont Stadium.

Santa is due to call here for breakfast on 9th December at 10.30am and we are all wondering what to serve him for his meal. We have had a few odd suggestions, such as Steak and chips but we feel breakfast is breakfast. So our menu todate is: Juice, cereal, sausages, yogurt, and milk. If you have any suggestion please let us know.

After breakfast he will spend time with each boy and girl and give them an early christmas surprise present.  With games set up in the room and a craft table everyone is bound to catch the Christmas spirit.

His journey to us is made possible by Royal Masterpeace, Navan and we would like to thank them for their generous sponsorship.

After Christmas Day, what better way to start the new year than to join in with our Annual 5K road race. This year the race will commemorate Rita Brady and Robbie Byrne,both worked tirelessly throughout their lives to make the stadium a reality.

Booking can be made on line at www.navanac.ie

Half Day Activity Workshops for Children

August can be a busy month, but often parents find it hard to answer the question, “What can I do, today?”

Claremont Stadium in an effort to help parents with active children has 4 very different workshops planned.

They are:

July 19th – Arts and Crafts with Isabella Fulop.

On 10th of August, The Brickxclub will provide enough ideas on how to be creative with Lego for children of 5 years and upwards.

18th August we have a choice of SpikeBall or Jewellery, and both start at 3pm. Please see posters for more information.

Places are limited, please phone us to make sure of a place.

Mother and Baby Fitness Class

With such a diverse number of people in our community stepping into their running shoes, we have noticed that there is one group who are not getting the help and attention they deserve and might need – new mums and their babies.

It is often hard to get back into fitness and shape after having a baby. With this in mind, Paul Tully (Personal Trainer) will start a mother and baby fitness class in September. Paul has run many classes here in the stadium and is well known in the area. His website is http://paultullyfitness.com/

If you are interested in joining his group please let us know by contacting us on facebook or by ringing the stadium 046 9029693

Let 2017 be the year that you succeed in climbing Croagh Patrick

Croagh Patrick is a well known challenge to everyone. This May, we are holding a fundraising day out. The date for your diary is 20th May. We propose to travel by bus to Croagh Patrick where we will climb the mountain, then on the way back to Navan, stop and have a meal before continuing our journey.

If you would like to join in the fun, please contact us by email; claremontevents@eircom.net

or phone us at 046 9029693.

As I have already mentioned this is a fundraising event and we will ask you to find sponsorship. The minimum amount is €100 but in return we will pay for your seat on the bus and for a meal after the climb.

 

Walking Group – Getting Motivated

Claremont Stadium’s Walking Group had a highly motivated walker drop in on Thursday 20th January to check in on our progress. Lucy Dillon of MLSP and Operation Motivation brought a ray of sunshine to the track. She gave everyone in the group some inspiring tips for walking regarding a simple stretching exercise, then joined in for a fast paced mile walk. The group ended the session with a few more stretches and all agreed it was a fun filled hour. We are looking forward to our next few weeks of meet ups.

As Lucy pointed out there are many additional benefits to walking besides the obvious; fresh air and exercise. Walking has been proven to improve our sense of wellbeing, influence our mood and in our case  make new friends. As we age walking is an easily affordable past time for us to stick to and when we add in a friend or two to the mix it makes it more fun for all involved.

We will continue to walk every Thursday at 11am and we are not regimented with our structure. We walk at a pace to suit each individual, with the promise of a cup of tea at the end to push us along. 

 

Successful Ice-cream party left us smiling

On Monday 27th June Claremont Stadium, staff, hosted an Ice Cream Party in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland.

We suspected it would be a hectic afternoon but what we didn’t know was how tired our faces would be from smiling and having fun with our small and taller supporters.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the children and parents who attended the event. IMG_0031IMG_0039[1]IMG_0052IMG_0054
