The Boomerang Bar is run and owned by Sandie and Derek Stanley, who also organised a recent get together for Ukrainian nationals who have arrived in Bray since conflict broke out in their homeland.

“The event is in aid of the Ukrainian families who have recently moved to hotels and other accommodation in Bray. Previously we organised a family day at Cornerstone Church for the latest arrivals from Ukraine. It at least provided them with a bit of happiness for an hour or two,” said Sandie.
