Fermanagh and Omagh District Council Recognises Commitment of Volunteers

6th November 2018

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council recently hosted a Volunteer Celebration Event to recognise the commitment and dedication of Council Volunteers.

The event, which was held at the Bawnacre Centre, Irvinestown afforded the Council the opportunity to highlight the importance and to acknowledge the role played by  volunteers in assisting with the delivery of services within the District.

Speaking at the event, the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Howard Thornton, in paying tribute to the volunteers, said,

“Without the input of these volunteers who so selflessly give of their time, the Council would find it much more difficult to be as effective in dealing with the public and helping to advise on areas such as Disability, Arts and Leisure. I am humbled by your efforts and tonight’s event affords me, as Chairman, the opportunity to, in some small way, thank you, on behalf of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and the people of the district for the positive contribution which you make to life in the Fermanagh and Omagh District.”

The Council has 19 volunteer roles spread across a number of services, ranging from Geopark Conservation Volunteering to membership of the Disability Advisory Group.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council open their registration process for volunteering twice yearly, in October and April. If you wish to find out more information on how you can get involved please telephone 0300 303 1777 or email volunteer@fermanaghomagh.com.
