Island Events

Papay Community Association (PCA)

The Papay Community Association (PCA) is a charity based on the isle that aims to promote the benefit of Papay residents through a social and recreation programme and to maintain the community school/centre and other community facilities. The PCA organises a range of events throughout the year, from dinners and dances to sporting events and our annual Fun Weekend. Isle events are also popular with visitors.

The community centre at the school has facilities such as badminton, table tennis, carpet bowls, a gym, a library (with computer and internet access) and potting wheel. The PCA also organises regular film nights, which are screened at Beltane House.

Events are advertised locally on the isle, usually by a poster in the community shop, as well as the Papay Facebook page
