Well done to all of the local groups and traders that attended a very significant and positive meeting in The BookMarket Kells on the evening of Wednesday October 14th. The meeting was hosted by Kells Chamber and chaired by Gary O'Meara of Meath Enterprise and the aim was for the groups to share what each other are doing in the local community and to work together going forward. Groups represented included Kells Chamber, Hay Festival Kells, Guth Gafa International Documentary Film Festival, Kells Tourism, Kells Local Heroes, Kells Arts Club, Kells Type Trail, Kells People's Resource Centre, Boyne Valley Food Series and The Sawmills. Following some very interesting discussions, it was decided to establish a Kells Development Committee that will be made up of representatives from all of the groups and traders and to put together both short-term and long-term action plans for Kells - with the overall aim of putting our heritage town firmly on the map of Discover Ireland's Ancient East Initiative. The next meeting will take place within a couple of weeks. If your community group would like to get involved, please contact Kells Chamber on 046 924 0055 during office hours.

The heritage town of Kells is a wonderful place to work, live or visit.
