About Us

The Knockmore Rathduff ESD Company was formed to carry on the promotion of local development, recreation, charitable and community development schemes and to create facilities for the social, cultural, educational and economics development of all the people in the community as an all-inclusive organisation.   Our vision is a community where all ages can live, work and enjoy various activities in a safe environment.

Our mission is to encourage and promote this vision by: assisting in the creation of a safe, friendly environment, working in partnership with voluntary groups within our community and in accordance with the health and safety guidelines as laid down in our policies and procedures.   Encouraging individuals to participate in recreation, health & fitness programmes, indoor activities in an alcohol free environment for our youth, Information Technology and further education.   Providing childcare services in addition to recreation and social community services for our senior citizens, secretarial assistance and access to internet at a nominal fee.   We would like the success of the Knockmore Rathduff Recreation & Resource Centre to be judged on performance based on the values of justice, fairness, co-operation, partnership with a strong sense of community spirit and pride.
