CDRCN was delighted to host its 26th AGM on Wednesday 13th October 2021, via Zoom video conferencing.
It was a pleasure to welcome Cllr Cathy Mason, Chair of Newry, Mourne & Down Council, who gave the opening remarks and spoke about the positive impact the Network has had in the past year.
Thank you also to Julian Simpson of Fibrus Hyperfast Broadband for the presentation on the roll-out of Project Stratum; and to Nigel McKinney of Rural Community Network, who gave a briefing on the opportunities and challenges of 5G for rural communities.
A special thanks and farewell to retiring board members Alan Dumigan (former Chair) and Reg Bell – thank you so much for your time, energy and expertise over the years! And a welcome to our elected committee members for the year ahead, representing communities from across South Armagh, Newry Mourne and Down, and North Down and Ards.
See attached our annual report for a snapshot of our work over the past year – it’s been another busy year, and we look forward to the challenges of the year ahead!
