Campsie Residents Association

Throughout the COVID-19 health pandemic, there have been many examples of our communities responding to the exceptional circumstances to help those in need. Here, Campsie Residents Association shares its story.

Food packs
Campsie Resident’s Association accessed funding from Fermanagh and Omagh District Council for food packs which were distributed in the community.

Campsie Community Tea Party
Adhering to social distance, Campsie community was filled with the sound of music as local musicians hosted an afternoon of entertainment which lifted the spirits of everyone and provided that much needed sense of connection. A tea party was planned with each house receiving cake and residents coming to their doors to have a socially distanced tea party.

Campsie Community Garden
During Covid 19, many people have found great solace in nature, and Campsie Community Garden has provided great solace as plants and vegetables continue to thrive.

Support for Key Workers
Each Thursday night residents came to their doors to clap for the NHS and even this simple gesture has provided that much needed sense of community connectedness.

A message from Campsie Resident’s Chairperson
Campsie Resident’s Chairperson, Hazel McGuigan, paid tribute to the community stating,

“It is the community spirit that has carried us through. Together we can do everything. Down through the years we always looked after our neighbours in Campsie, so naturally at this time of crisis we need that neighbourliness more than ever.”

*Fermanagh and Omagh District Council was pleased to provide Campsie Residents Association with £1,800 of funding support.
