Bayside Board Game Group


First Sunday of every month, 1 - 5pm (drop in anytime)

Cost: Free of charge (snacks for sharing always appreciated)

Age: 16 - 99


The Bayside Board Games Group is a monthly meet for people to play board games together. If board games make you think of Monopoly, Risk and Uno then you may be in for a big surprise because there has been a huge amount of game development in the last 20 years. Modern games are fun, often quick to learn, beautifully designed and incredibly varied with something on offer for everyone. This group welcomes players of all abilities and interests, whether you want to play a few light-hearted card games for half an hour or a full four-hour strategy challenge that nobody else at home wants to play with you. Bring your own games or play any of the ones that we have. Rules will always be explained beforehand and no experience is required.

Lasting Friendship

The Good Neighbours Social Club

Contact: Frances Elliott 01-8325026 or 086 0789952

Every 2nd Thursday at 10:30am. New members always welcome.

In 1979, a group of ladies got together to form a social club for senior citizens in the area. This resulted in the Good Neighbours Social Club which is still going strong.

We meet in the Community Centre to enjoy a chat, a cuppa and beautiful homemade cakes. We have gamesdays, a Summer outing, the occasional theatre visit and a Christmas party. We also host the annual Alzheimer's Tea Day and Hospice Coffee Morning.  Every 6-8 weeks, a newsletter is delivered to our members keeping them up to date.
