AN estimated 50 people attended a public meeting of Ballydehob Community Council last week, which was convened to outline plans for the future development of the village and its hinterland.
Council chairman Patrick Murphy said he felt the community has had the opportunity to ‘see the massive amount of work this volunteer group of people elected from the different areas in and around Ballydehob have done since it was started in 1993’.
Writing on Facebook after the meeting, Mr Murphy said the work had been done ‘even though the group only meet for two hours once a month adding to a total of 24 hours per year.’
‘Now this requested meeting has taken place, the whole community will get behind its Community Council and support them to help develop the different community projects it is engaged in,’ he added.
‘There are many ways this support can be given and all are welcome. It is up to the individual in what way they would like to provide their support,’ he wrote.
‘If you wish to see your Community Council work for you, then feel free to contact us,’ he added.
