a) Business Community
b) Community & Voluntary Groups / Organisations
c) Cultural / Arts Groups d) Education/health promotion groups
e) Historic & Heritage Societies
f) Social Inclusion/Support Groups
g) Sports Clubs and Societies h) Tidy Towns / Environmental Groups
i) Youth Groups & Children’s Groups j) Local Community members / individuals

The closing date for applications to be part of the team is Monday, November 16.
