West Tyrone MLA, Declan Mc Aleer has invited rural community groups to meet the Finance Minister, Máirtín Ó Muilleoir at a breakfast conference next Wednesday morning (9th Nov.).
Speaking ahead of the visit Mr Mc Aleer said, "Rural groups are the backbone of our community and are facing a challenge to provide high quality services in the context of budget cuts, competing priorities and uncertainties which have arisen as a result of the vote on EU exit.
"The Finance Minister is a pivotal figure as we move towards agreement on a new Programme For Government and this meeting is an opportunity to place rural needs firmly on his agenda.
"Those in attendance will hear an address from the Minister and will also have the opportunity to raise issues and ask questions during an open session. There will also be an opportunity to speak on a one-to-one basis with the Minister and find out more details of his plans, including the recently announced rates exemption for community amateur sports clubs.
"The event will take place in Loughmacrory clubrooms from 10am-12pm and breakfast will be served from 9.30am. If a local group wishes to be represented please send an RSVP email along with numbers planning to attend to declanmcaleermla@hotmail.com"
