Associations

The Fgura Scout Group had its first meeting in the Parrochial Centre on the 18th July 1987. However, the Group was officially formed on the 29th November of the same year. The first il-Fgura Scout Group Leader was Mr. Paul Camilleri.
 
The Group, today, has its premises in Mater Boni Consilii Street. Scouts have become so many in numbers that the Group has stopped recruiting for the time being. A milestone that marks the level of development of the Group is the setting up, recently, of the Beaver section.
 
Then come the Girl Guides. The first Group was started in 1988. Their numbers have increased progressively, and today they constitute quite a functional Group, taking part in most manifestations in il-Fgura.
The il-Fgura Football Club was founded in 1970. A year later Fgura United was affiliated to the Malta Football Association, and it began to take part in the league. In the season 1972/73 they were Runners Up, and a season later they were Champions of the Minor section.
 
Today they have their club in St. Thomas Street, and also their football ground, where they train and hold football competitions.

 In il-Fgura we have also the Bowling Club (Klabb tal-Boċċi), that has an adjacent pitch. The Club was founded on the 8th December 1985.
 
Then there is the Pigeon Club, recently founded, with its premises in Triq il-Klerku. The Club enjoys the support of many enthusiasts of the sport.
 
In il-Fgura today we have the whole spectrum of religious and secular Associations. Specially mentioned should be the three Praesidia of the Legion of Mary, the Fgura Branch of the Azzjoni Kattolika Maltija, the Charismatic Group, the Gruppi Familji Nsara, the Cathecumenal Group, amongst others.

Local Associations
The local Musical and Social Association, with the name of Madonna tal-Karmnu was founded in 1985.
 The first enthusiasts met in a garage in Kent Street, with the aim of setting up a band to play during the titular feast and other occasions.

The band was set up, and in 1986 it had its first premises in another garage in Kent Street. However, the Association did not stop there, and the Committee started looking immediately for a larger and more decorous premises.
A large house was bought in Hompesch Road and, after a lot of work and refurbishment, the new premises was inaugurated in 1991. Now the band had a more comfortable club where to meet and rehearse, and plan activities.
The Band Club set up a nursery that gives free lessons to young enthusiasts who are interested in learning a musical instrument.
It is also involved in street decorating during the Festa period, as well as with the preparation of fireworks and the pyrotechnic aspect of the titular feast of il-Fgura.
Political Party Clubs in il-Fgura
Both the large Political Parties: the Partit Nazzjonalista and the Malta Labour Party have their clubs in Hompesch Road. The first Malta Labour Party Committee was formed in 1963. The Partit Nazzjonalista set up its first Section Committee in il-Fgura in April 1974.
Catholic Catechism Centres ( M.U.S.E.U.M.)
 
Before the Second World war, men from the Ħal Tarxien Section of the Society of Christian Doctrine (M.U.S.E.U.M.) used to come to il-Fgura to impart Catholic Doctrine lessons to the few children that lived in il-Fgura at the time.
 
When the war ended the number of children began to increase fastly throughout the Maltese Islands; and very much so in il-Fgura, which began to attract new families. Cathechesis was given in two small rooms; but soon the need was felt to find larger premises, and the Society bought the whole building which included the two rooms that had been used till then. This centre
 
However, this solved the problem only temporarily, because the number of children in il-Fgura kept increasing fenominally. So a new premises was found, when the Society bought a flat in Dun Ġorġ Preca Street. This flat had more rooms and a sizeable hall for the chapel.
 
But it soon proved to be quite inadequate for children’s needs. Besides giving the children a religious formation, the Society of Christian Doctrine prides itself with giving them a holistic up-bringing. Children must play with each other and meet informally to make friends and help each other in a relaxing atmosphere. To satisfy these needs the il-Fgura section bought some land, quite near the parish church, and built it up with the exigences of children in mind. This new premises is in White Friars Street.

 Il-Fgura has also the female section of the Society of Christian Doctrine. The first premises where cathecism teachers used to give lessons in Catholic Doctrine to girls was in a small flat, on the first floor, in White Friars Street. In 1990 the Society decided to buy quite a large house in Triq il-Kampanella, where the section is still to be found today. This house offers more space for activities, other than the teaching of Catholic Doctrine.
