Oak Ok!

After a hectic brainstorming session, way back in the depths of winter, the committee and working groups of Timahoe Community Council drew up a comprehensive, in-house training agenda. Aims, purposes, community links, networking and motivation were among the many topics listed. The first workshop was held in December under the expert guidance of Joan Mooney and Dermot O’Donnell. All those attending were enthusiastic in their praise of this day long seminar. we hope that what we learned will help us to serve our community better so that they, in turn, may benefit also. Thanks to the funding recently received from OAK Partnership, the remaining two workshops can now be arranged, We will make every effort to ensure that this funding (221.83) will bear fruit one hundredfold in our growing community.
