Wicklow and District Lions Club members were proud to be invited by Wicklow County Council to be part of the Enterprise Showcase Day in the Grand Hotel on Wednesday last.

The club was part of the Bank of Ireland's National Enterprising Town Awards which aims to assist in the promotion of enterprise across the country by bringing business and community groups together to showcase to a panel of judges, the spirit of enterprise in their local area.

Wicklow town has been chosen to represent County Wicklow in the 10,001 plus population category and according to the comments of the judges Wicklow performed very well on the day.

There was tremendous support from various organisations on the day and the search is now on for Ireland's most enterprising towns and villages

Team Wicklow wish to present the town as a positive and productive place to do business and a fantastic community in which to reside, work and spend your free time and Wicklow Lions Club is very much part of the local community.

The presentations took 30 minutes and will be followed by a 30 minute questions and answers session and a further 20 minute social time for the judges to meet local business through the expo. The judges visited key initiatives and businesses selected by the organising committee before and after the Grand Hotel visit.
