There was a wonderful turnout at the meeting on Tuesday 23rd January.  

At the meeting Ann Connor, Tricia Brophy and Marie Reynolds (Nugent) addressed those present. They provided details of the scheme and a more detailed break down of what help was needed and how they planned to progress the scheme in the parish. 

Many people offered to help - thank you to all those who volunteered for the steering group, to perform ad-hoc tasks or to join one of the teams which will be setting up.
