Forthcoming Roscommon Public Participation Network Expo

Roscommon Public Participation Network will be hosting their County Plenary and Community Expo on Wednesday evening, November 29th, from 7-9 pm in the Abbey Hotel, Roscommon Town.

On the night, there will be an impressive line-up of speakers, a panel discussion on emerging funding opportunities and the launch of our ‘County Vision for Community Wellbeing’ document based on recent community consultations.

The theme of this year’s plenary is ‘Enhancing Community Wellbeing’, which has the aim of providing communities with a wealth of knowledge on key local supports along with exciting updates from the PPN on recent developments in the community sector.

The event will culminate with an informative networking showcase where attendees will receive an array of information from local supports including Community Finance Providers, Roscommon LEADER Partnership and the Roscommon Volunteer Centre.

Supports will also be available on the night from An Garda Síochána, Roscommon Comhairle na nÓg, local Family Resource Centres and many more. The bi-annual event is an appropriate platform to bring communities together to network, learn and share information.

Refreshments will be served and all potential new members are encouraged to attend the free event. Those in attendance will also be entered into a draw to win a €500 Training bursary for their group or organisation.

Registration for the event is essential and can be completed online via Eventbrite or by contacting the PPN Team on 086-0478616 or emailing More details to follow in next week’s paper.
