Deputy Mayor Trevor Clarke Welcomes R&A’s £100,000 Legacy Fund

1 Mins read

Details which have been revealed of an ‘open legacy fund’ package aimed specifically at the disruption and inconvenience caused to the Portrush community have also been welcomed by the Deputy Mayor of the Borough, DUP Councillor Trevor Clarke.

Speaking to Causeway Coast Community this afternoon, Deputy Mayor Trevor Clarke said ‘The R&A’s £100,000 Legacy Fund is welcome and will, I hope, create some lasting benefits for the local community in Portrush.

Portrush residents accommodate a lot of disruption during any given year with a succession of major events and a growing tourism industry, so it only right these and the Open – the biggest event the Borough is ever likely to host – should create a dividend for local people. Without community buy-in, events of this nature wouldn’t succeed as they do.

The work around the streets, at the train station, harbour and car parks have really lifted the quality of the environment in the town – however, there is still a lack of decent playpark and sports facilities. Council needs to address these shortcomings.

Council also needs to ensure the benefits of its support for the Open extend beyond the period of the event itself, and are felt right across the Borough for years to come.’
