Ar aghaidh le chéile - "Forward Together"

Westenders is a senior citizen group that like An Post Fanách was borne out an older people forum and as an organisation has grown from strength to strength. Initially managed by a joint steering group of SHSST, WAC and members of its founding committee. It is now a fully functioning and independent group in its own right and an affiliated member of the West Armagh Consortium.

Since then, the Westenders has outgrown every early expectation. Its membership is now in excess of 150. Our premises at Cathedral Road is used as a base for a lot of their activities but the scale of their action plan means that delivery of programmes and events is wide and varied and making use of other venues.

A full programme of Westenders events can be acquired by calling into our offices at Cathedral Road. Their motto is ‘Aging is inevitable.. getting old is optional’ and they definitely live up to that maxim.
