At last nights Leisure and Development Committee, it was agreed that Council would appoint a project officer to take the lead in what promises to be an exciting programme of events next year.
The move was welcomed by DUP Group Lead, Councillor Aaron Callan, who said: “A working group has over the last number of months been preparing a list of projects and events for the area.
“This will include support for local community groups to deliver their own projects and events.
“The working group have agreed four themes for the Centenary year; celebrating the 100th anniversary of Northern Ireland. They are:
• Heritage and Culture,
• Great Northern Ireland Minds and Innovation,
• Sport & Wellbeing and Community Development,
• Food, Drink and Entertainment.
Cllr Callan continued: “under these four main themes, we will be developing a number of existing events and projects to celebrate the centenary.
“We welcome, and hope the entire community in Causeway Coast and Glens Borough will engage in these themes and the programme that will be unveiled in the coming months, concluded Cllr Callan
