We all know it! Fermoy is a great place in which to live, work and do business. It is a town filled with dynamic and enthusiastic people, some of whom got together last year and have put the framework in place to establish Fermoy Forum.

Fermoy Forum is a voluntary organisation made up of local people that work in partnership with local businesses, community groups and the municipal authority to develop and communicate opportunities and implement plans for the economic social and environmental development of Fermoy town.

Working in partnership with Fermoy Municipal Authority, the forum’s activities will cover areas such a strategic business planning, proactive sectoral development, feasibility assessment and management of projects, area branding, promotion, marketing, networking and the monitoring of projects.

All of this has just one aim, to facilitate those within the community to work together through partnership to enrich our town as a place in which to work, live and do business.

Wednesday, June 21 at 5.30pm is the date for the launch event of the Fermoy Forum.

If you are in business, working in retail or in any of the vast array of services our town provides, if you are interested in our town’s rich heritage and tourism opportunities or are involved in a community or club-based group, you are invited to a barbecue in The Wagon Tavern, Cork Road, to meet the Fermoy Forum committees and have the opportunity to add your voice to this exciting new partnership in Fermoy.

This is a free event and we are looking forward to seeing as many local faces as possible.

For further information, please contact Safron O’Sullivan on 025-34632 or by email to admin@fermoyforum.net.
