Dear PPN Members,
You are cordially invited to the PPN Municipal District (MD) Plenary Meeting for your area. Based on topics that are currently of interest to community members the PPN Secretariat are delighted to announce the following Guest Speakers for all three meetings:
Catherine O’ Toole, Irish Environmental Network – will present the benefits of establishing a Longford Environmental Network. As you maybe aware groups such as Tidy Towns and other environmental interest groups can now transfer from the Community & Voluntary College of the PPN to the Environmental College. If your group does not wish to transfer, members/individuals of any community group who are interested in environmental issues and how Longford can respond are invited to join the Longford Environmental Network, an initiative brought forward by Francesca Pawelczyk, PPN Environmental Rep on the Secretariat.
Christine Collins, Longford County Council Broadband and Digital Officer – will share vital information and bring you up to speed on the county’s Community Hubs, what they will be used for, who can use them, what training will be provided to the public, where the funding for these hubs came from, how they will be managed and much more.
Clare McEnroe, Grow Remote Longford Chapter– will also share vital information on how you can find remote work and continue to live locally.
If you have any specific questions for any of the speakers please submit them to Helen or Siobhán prior to the meeting so we can stick to the meeting time schedule. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions on the night.
The meetings will close with our normal raffle, 1st prize €200, 2nd prize €100 and 3rd prize €50.
