The public have been thanked by a leading North Antrim Sir Knight for their “magnificent support” of the traditional Last Saturday Royal Black county demonstration in Ballymena.

The praise for both the public and the Royal Black Institution has come from Mr Robin Swann MLA, the North Antrim UUP Chairman and Party Chief Whip, who was on parade with his preceptory. Mr Swann is a Past Master in the Black.

In his statement of praise, Mr Swann said: “The community is to be highly commended for its magnificent support of County Antrim Grand Black Chapter’s parade in Ballymena.

“The organizing Sir Knights are to be equally commended for hosting a very professional demonstration which enhanced the Black’s true Christian and family values.

“We all also give thanks to Almighty God for the great weather which the Last Saturday demonstration in Ballymena enjoyed as well as for the safety of those on the march and watching.

“Praise must also be given to the professionalism of the police on duty and the emergency services which were on standby as well throughout the day.

“This year’s demonstration was one of the best attended in the history of Royal Black in the county.

“As well as the annual Last Saturday main and feeder parades, the community is also to be thanked and praised for its support of the various Black Preceptories’ annual divine church parades and services,” said Assemblyman Swann.
