Grounds looking well

St Michael’s Family Life Centre






We do our best to keep the grounds of the centre in good condition and we are very thankful to our wonderful CE participants who work so hard keeping the grass cut and gardens looking well This benefits all the people young and old who visit the centre.

This takes a lot of hard work especially since our old ride-on mower has given up the ghost and the grounds have been cut with two old push mowers for the past 2 years
We  applied for a lottery grant to buy a new one but unfortunately we were not successful!

If anyone knows of a good mower going cheaply or any garden centre may be willing to do us a good deal at this time of the year, it would be appreciated. In turn we would advertise your business on our twice yearly brochure and online. Please get in touch on 071 9170329 or email us on
