Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is holding a number of ‘quiet Christmas’ afternoons for children with autism.

The pilot project will be rolled out in Ballymoney, Limavady, Coleraine and Ballycastle.

It will allow children and their family members to meet individually with Santa Claus in a calm and quiet environment.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird OBE said she hoped the initiative would benefit local families: “Our ‘quiet Christmas’ events will help to ensure that our festive celebrations are accessible to all. It’s a very special time of year, especially for our young people, but it can be difficult for those with autism. With this in mind, we hope this programme will allow all children to enjoy the magical experience of meeting Santa and sharing their Christmas wishes with him.”

Each child will receive a small gift during their visit.

The first ‘Quiet Christmas’ will take place in Ballymoney Town Hall on Thursday 16th November from 3pm – 5pm, followed by Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady on Saturday 18th November from 1pm – 3.00pm, Coleraine Town Hall on Friday 24th November from 3pm – 5pm and Sheskburn House in Ballycastle on Thursday 7th December from 3pm – 5pm.

Spaces are limited and must be pre-booked in advance by contacting Tracey Freeman, Events Officer on [email protected] or 028 7034 7221.
