Published: 24 November, 2014


Derg Sinn Féin councillor Kieran McGuire has this week encouraged all interested parties to attend a public information event in Strabane District Council offices which will create an awareness of the new Local Action Groups which are to be formed.

The event will take place on Monday 1st December between 7pm-9pm.

Speaking this week Cllr McGuire said,

"Our area benefitted massively from the previous Local Action Groups which saw successes such as walking trails, festivals, MUGA pitches, gyms, tourist accommodation and benefits for local businesses.

I would encourage all rural dwellers that have an interest in their community and also the business and farming communities and those with an interest in tourism, heritage and youth to attend the event and put themselves forward as potential Social Partner Local Action Group (LAG) Members. It is vital that people are registered as LAG members before the 19th December 2014 if they wish to be eligible to become elected as LAB Board Members in January 2015. To book your place at the meeting please telephone 02871397990."
