I was delighted to attend the CEP Grant Reception held in Tubbercurry on the 25th March, where I had the pleasure of meeting many community and voluntary groups who continue to work tirelessly for their communities. I would like to thank Jude Mannion, Sligo County Council and Cllr. Sinead Maguire, Chairperson LCDC for their assistance in delivering this €250,000 fund which was announced by Minister Ring last year.
I attended this event as the Treasurer of Dromore West Village Enhancement Committee. Last year our committee availed of the CEP Grant to purchase a new computer and printer which was used to promote a CE Scheme within Dromore West, where by a CE Worker now acts as an administrative support officer for the local community groups. This is a project I have been working on to get across the line for many months both in my role working with the Village Enhancement Committee and at the time as the sitting Chairperson of Dromore West Community Council CLG. I am delighted that this funding helped enable our community groups to see this project to fruition.
