A Christmas message from the Mayor

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has said we should take time to reach out to our neighbours during this festive season.

In a Christmas message to the Borough, Alderman Maura Hickey explained: “This is a time of year that many people look forward to. During the Holiday period we have a chance to meet up with family and friends, especially those we may not have seen in a while. It’s a time to exchange presents, socialise with each other and enjoy a well-deserved break. “But for many people, this isn’t what they experience. Those living alone, the elderly or the ill can feel isolated from the celebrations.

This year I would urge everyone to think about those people in their communities who may not be having a happy Christmas – reach out to them and be a good neighbour during this season of goodwill. “Time, company and a listening ear are the presents they would like to receive this year.”

“As Mayor, it’s been a busy lead up to the Christmas period. I’ve taken part in switching on the Christmas lights in various locations across the Borough, which has been a highlight of my term so far. “The joy of the children at these events is infectious and it was clear to see what a magical time of year it is for them all. “Throughout the year I have attended events right across the Borough.

I’ve witnessed at first hand the good work going on in many communities. I would like to take this opportunity to commend those who work so hard to improve the lives of those around them.

“Finally, I would like to wish everyone a happy and peaceful Christmas, as we look forward with anticipation to what the New Year will bring.”
