SDLP Councillor Margaret Anne Mc Killop has thanked public service workers and local people for their efforts throughout storm Ophelia yesterday and last night.
Speaking to Causeway Coast Community this morning Margaret said “I never fail to be amazed by the warm community spirit in our area, especially during difficult times. I want to place on record my sincere thanks to those who worked throughout the day and night to ensure that people were kept safe and damage to property was minimised.
“Thanks to the efforts of local people and outstanding community volunteers, last night was easier than it would otherwise have been for many vulnerable people.
“There’s no doubt that overall preparation for the storm could have been better, and lessons must be learned from this experience, but I can’t fault those who came out last night to support those who really needed it.”
