Roscommon Chamber is planning for Christmas!

Roscommon Chamber of Commerce has announced details of an exciting build-up to Christmas, to include performances by local choirs – and free hot chocolate for children!

  In a press statement, the Chamber outlined: “Roscommon Chamber have had several meetings to put in place plans for the forthcoming Christmas season. The Christmas Lights committee are already at work getting the lights ready.

  “The Chamber is hoping to build on the success of last year’s Christmas events, starting with the turning on of the lights on the 27th of November. The turning on of the lights was a great success last year and the free hot chocolates went down particularly well with the children!

  “The Chamber will again be organising the Christmas Window Display competition for members of the Chamber (sponsored by AIB), and both the Solstice Choir and the Convent Choir will be joining in the festivities.

  “Apart from music being played throughout the town, the Chamber is also organising a street fair and businesses will be putting on events in conjunction with this fair. Numerous events are being planned to create that special atmosphere in the town, which will hopefully attract more people to the town and retain business in the town. Christmas is an extremely important time for the businesses and every effort is being made to make the whole experience something that will generate memories and enjoyment for the people shopping in Roscommon.”

  The next meeting of the Chamber to finalise the plans will be held in Gleeson’s Townhouse at 6.30 pm on Wednesday, 2nd of November. All business owners are invited and encouraged to attend. All ideas and help appreciated. You don’t have to be a member of the Chamber to attend.
