Wilson welcomes committee support for his proposal that Council acquire ownership of Edward Street Social Centre.
Speaking to Causeway Coast Community this morning Ulster Unionist Councillor Darryl Wilson said “The ownership and condition of Edward Street Social Centre has been scrutinised and debated for many months now, with several legal issues delaying progress in finding a resolution.
The Centre was originally founded by the late Mollie Holmes as a social centre over 30 years ago for all of the people of Ballymoney and the wider area to enjoy.
It now forms an integral part of Ballymoney’s infrastructure and accommodates not only the Evergreen Club and the Gateway club, but various other community groups and organisations who greatly benefit from, and rely on the facility.
I am delighted that my proposal to see council take ownership and to refurbish Edward Street Social Centre go through last night’s leisure and development committee with a heavy majority. (Provided restrictive covenants are removed) It is my hope that the parties which supported my proposal at committee last night will do the same at full council where the committee decision will be ratified.”
