Linda-Jo Quinn and Arlene Kelly at the Indoor Market/Jumble Sale
Athlone Women's Network in conjunction with Westmeath Community Development and Athlone Community Taskforce organised its first ever indoor market/jumble sale on Sunday 10th November in the newly renovated St Marys Hall Athlone. The purpose of the event was to raise funds for Athlone Women's Network and also provide an opportunity for the micro business sector to promote their business. This was an excellent example of Community and Enterprise development at the same time promoting the importance of gender equality and women in business. Feedback from the 19 business promoters was excellent and due to popular demand from businesses the organisers are in the process of planning a further indoor market/jumble sale for Sunday 8th December.

More details on the next event will be released shortly.
