This was later followed by an Invited Guests section, during which people and organisations working within the field of Social & Community Development in the local area were invited. During this time light refreshments were served (thanks to the sterling work, committment and pragmatism of the Ladies Club!) and people were able to enjoy the displays of the CDP in an informal and encouraging manner.
Local elected representatives were also invited and the VBoM is grateful to Kilian Forde (SF) and Sean Kenny (LB) of Dublin City Council for taking the time to attend and demonstrate an interest in the work of the local CDP. We we're also pleased to see those who have benefitted from the work of the Project coming along as 'living examples' of our activities.
There were also some key local community activists, Statutory Agencies and Health Service Professionals enjoying our displays and their encouaraging comments were greatly appreciated by the Staff, Volunteers and VBoM.
The information we gathered from our Sticky Wall was incredible, with little space left at the end for further ideas and suggestions. Young people appeared particularly keen to get their ideas across. Click on the link to see what people thought Edenmore needed.
