Swinford Cycling Club Spinning Classes

Spinning Classes will commence on Monday 24th November at 8pm in Community Centre, Swinford. Registration will start at 7.30pm and the classes will run for the next five weeks. The total cost to members (Swinford CC or Swinford Tri) will be €15 or if paying by the night €5 per session. The cost to non members will be €20 for the full five weeks.

Though some of our members have expressed an interest in doing a run beforehand it is important that spinning starts on time so perhaps it may be best to leave that on hold until after Monday night.

We have a few spare turbo trainers which can be made available if required. These will be given out on a first come first served basis.

Swinford Cycling Club would also like to remind you that they hold a cycle every Sunday morning departing at 9:15am sharp from Corrib Oil. There are various routes available to cater for all categories of cyclist from the novice right up to the more experienced bike rider.

All route maps and other updates are posted weekly on the Swinford Cycle Club Facebook page.

Hospice Shop Christmas Bazaar

The Hospice Shop Christmas Bazaar will be held in the Cultural Centre on Sunday 30th November. Doors open at 12 noon. There will be lots of Christmas gifts ideas, decorations, jewellery, bric-a-brac, books, dvds, cakes, teas and coffees, small items of furniture, health products, raffles, along with children’s entertainment and plenty of good music. A fun day out for all the family, Santa will also be visiting with lots of goodies, so see ye there!
