Laois Community Forum are hosting an Information and Networking Evening for all Portlaoise Residents groups on Tuesday, May 21 at 7.30pm .
The eveing, in Portlaoise Heritage Hotel, is organised in association with An Garda Siochana, Laois Partnership Company and Laois County Council.
The objective of this networking evening evolved from a meeting between Laois Community Forum with an Garda Siochana about how they could assist Portlaoise Residents groups to share information and help each other,.
This meeting is also a follow up to last year’s Residents meeting which is hoped to be an annual event. A similar event was held for Community Alert Groups in the county, last month and proved to be very successful.

If you are a representative of a Resident group in Portlaoise, this meeting will benefit your group greatly with up-to-date information and an opportunity to talk to other groups.
