A GROUP of Rathcoole mums have started a six-week DIY course in plumbing, joinery and tiling run by Women’s TEC.

The women were keen to learn how to do their own home maintenance instead of getting someone in to do it and came together through the Barnardo’s NI Newtownabbey Family Connections project.

The Women’s TEC course, funded by the Northern Ireland Co-operative Community Fund, runs at Rathcoole Primary School every Wednesday.

The Family Connections project works in three local primary schools and offers a range of courses including those dealing with parenting issues, helping children with their homework, sewing, arts and crafts and a boot camp exercise class.

Any parents from the Rathcoole area who would like to find out more should call Martin on Tel: 9036 4688.
