Speakers 2019/2020

Superintendent Clive Beatty - 4 November

Superintendent Clive Beatty

Monday’s meeting on 4th November was wonderfully addressed by Superintendent Clive Beatty, the District Commander for Policing in Fermanagh and Omagh District. Clive was born and raised in Fermanagh and is thankful for the privilege of policing an area that he holds dear to his heart. He spoke in length about the threats to the Police and how he was worried about the younger generation of police getting the right training from the older generation who have experience during the troubles. On a positive note, Fermanagh has the lowest rate of crime, an encouraging attribute for the county. Great speaker, thank you Clive.

Claire McDermot - 7 October

Claire Mc Dermot and Sembs (Pres)

The speaker on Monday 7th October was Claire Mc Dermot from Fermanagh & Omagh District Council (FODC) on “The Council’s Approach to Recycling”. It was a very informative and interesting talk and left us with plenty to think about. It was great to see three new faces at the meeting, Hazel McFarland, Jenny Humphreys and Amy McKinney. We hope to see them again and perhaps convince them to become members.
