Newly elected SDLP Assembly member for East Derry Gerry Mullan has welcomed the approval of funding by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council for a new community hall in Magilligan.

He said: “This project has been long overdue but, nevertheless, I am absolutely delighted as a native of the area who has been a member of the Magilligan Community Association for many years to know that at long last the local community are about to have a new, well designed community building that will be fit-for purpose and serve the needs of everyone in the area for years to come.

“Funding applications by nature are inherently laborious and difficult to secure but particularly in the current economic climate where public funds are extremely limited and so stringently monitored. I am in no doubt that this project would not have been delivered without the downright dogged determination and teamwork of all the committee members. The support of council officers in both the old Limavady legacy council and the new Causeway Coast and Glens Borough council has also been invaluable in helping to get this project across the line as was the assistance of an independent consultant, Mrs Bridget Duggan, who mentored the group and put together such a compelling business case.

In conclusion Mr Mullan said: “This is such exciting news for all concerned at Magilligan Community Association and hopefully the contractor will be on site very soon so that the construction work can begin. When completed this building will be such an invaluable resource for the whole community for decades to come”
