The monthly meeting of Strokestown Town Team is being held this Wednesday (3rd July) at 8pm, in The Percy French Hotel.
Strokestown Businesses and Community Groups are invited to attend and contribute to the future of our town.
The Town Team brings together people who live and work in, and around, Strokestown.
It is the direct link between our local stakeholders (Community Groups, Businesses etc.) and regional Government (i.e. Roscommon County Council, LEADER partnership, Local Enterprise Office etc.).
This means the Town Team has an essential role in identifying ways to retain a strong community at the heart of a vibrant, and busy, Strokestown by ensuring that available regional/national funding is applied for (either directly by the Town Team or via local groups and businesses) and is used to benefit Strokestown AS A WHOLE.
