Gardening with Aideen

It was a lovely Autumn morning today in Sligo so Aideen and Dylan were out in our garden digging up some of our harvest of organic potatoes and garlic. Delicious and well worth the wait 😋

Sligo CTC Training

We are getting a great response from our trainees with wearing face coverings, good hand hygiene and keeping a safe distance in the centre for the new normal this week.  It is fantastic to have them back working away in the sports, catering, hairdressing and computer departments!  Pictured above is Reece, computer trainee.

Our hairdressing trainees are working on the 'Barbicide COVID-19' online certification in the
