Canadian Ambassador visits Navan for Magical evening in Solstice Arts Centre

          A magical evening was had by all who attended the Canadian Male Voice Choir concert hosted by and including the wonderful Navan Male voice choir.   Tara Ladies choir were superb and the very beautiful,  Local Navan lady, Soprano Louise Martin wooed the crowed  with her angelic voice. Navan Chamber President, Donna Farrell, presented Mr Kevin Vickers, Canadian Ambassador with a print from local artist Patsy Reel, which depicted Navan Mills, and of course for those of you who are not aware, Navan Ireland is twinned with Navan Ontario so Mr Vickers was delighted with the momento and it was a very fitting presentation to round off a fabulous night. A big thanks to John and Carmel Kelly Chairman of the Navan Male Voice Choir and all the organisers involved in the performance and Cllr Wayne Forde, acting Mayor of Navan who received the Ambassador.   Proceeds from the evening supported two very worthy organisations, SoSad and Navan Alzheimer’s society....

Navan Mayors Happiness Project 2015

  Navan Mayor’s Happiness Project: Following the discovery of an unconscious man in a car park in Navan, Co. Meath and the events surrounding this discovery including public involvement and concern, The Navan Mayor’s Happiness Project was born. The project was co-founded by local Navan resident Sinead C. Kavanagh and 2014-15 Navan Mayor Sinead Burke. Concept The project is about increasing social awareness and social responsibility throughout our town, starting conversations and opening up communications between all social and community groups and organisations. We would like to try to unite people in a way that shows care for others, acceptance of personal and social responsibility and improves the lives and well-being of everyone. There are three strands to the Project which is hoped will be a perpetual one, supported by each incoming new Mayor of Navan. The first strand involves video virals which will be produced in conjunction with a community group and buddy media students from Maynooth University. The second strand follows a train of thought from Social Psychologist Maureen Gaffney and involves Comhairle na nÓg. The third and final element of the Project in one which will see every person in Navan town and surrounds be they visitor or resident, young or old, being able to be involved in spreading a little kindness, care and happiness. The ‘Cup of Human Kindness’ will see the coffee shops, tea rooms and cafés of Navan come together and make it easy to ‘show someone you care’. Smile!   Happiness Cup Coins now available in 18 outlets in Navan! The price of gold is going up… our advice is to invest...
