1. COOROW MAIN STREET AND LEEMAN & ACTIVATION WORKSHOP

A community workshops held on the 17th February 2022, delivered by Town Team Movement and allowed the participants to share their ideas and enthusiasm on various community projects. The session was then followed by a Q&A. Following on from these workshops, support and action teams will be formed to bring the projects to life. These projects will be a benefit to the whole of the community and will attract visitors interest to come see our great little towns.
