CEL­E­BRA­TIONS were held in BBH (Bal­lyguile, Broad­lough, Hil­lview) Com­mu­nity Cen­tre last Tues­day to mark the cen­tre’s tenth an­niver­sary.

Tea, cof­fee and light re­fresh­ments were served, while pho­tos and dis­plays of past BBH projects were up on display for all to see.

There was also a great danc­ing display put on by some of the kids who at­tend BBH Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, They were joined by Stephen Mor­ley, who spent close to six years liv­ing in Wick­low when he used to carry out a lot of work with the kids. Now he is back in Wick­low on a short visit, and is teach­ing the kids a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing Amer­i­can sports.

Cllr Aoife Flynn Kennedy, Chair­per­son of the East Coast Re­gional Drugs and Al­co­hol Task Force, said: ‘It’s a won­der­ful com­mu­nity cen­tre with fan­tas­tic ac­tiv­i­ties for the young and old. The ECRDATF has had the plea­sure of work­ing with this cen­tre for many years, and hope to do so for many more to come.’

Lau­ren Keogh of BBH of­fered her grat­i­tude to everyone for their sup­port over the past decade.

‘Many thanks to everyone as­so­ci­ated with the hall and for help­ing to put to­gether tonight’s cel­e­bra­tions. There are far too many peo­ple to men­tion, but they are the ones there all through the years, work­ing away and giv­ing up their time to make the hall such a suc­cess,’ said Lau­ren.
