Newbridge School House Development Group
LEADER Community Funding
Newbridge School House Development Group's primary purpose is to develop St. Mary’s School in Newbridge for community use. The committee has drawn together several members who have expertise in their respective fields to ensure that the project is an overall success and can guarantee that the facilities will be used to their maximum potential. The school ceased to operate in 1980. Since that time it has been used by the community of Newbridge for various activities on a regular basis including: community meetings, church meetings, drama group, youth activities etc. Although the services have been hugely successful there was an apparent need for improvement of the centre, as it had neither proper toilet facilities nor kitchen. Funding was secured to install these services and as a result the centre can now be used on a more frequent basis for a wider variety of services and activities in the local community.
