Councillor praises ‘Tidy Town’ efforts

BALLYCASTLE SDLP councillor Dónal Cunningham has commended the efforts of two local men who are organising a “Tidy our Town” day.

“Having identified the need to maintain the attractiveness of the Ballycastle streetscape, the initiative aims to enhance the appearance of Castle Street, and to give some of the empty properties a facelift. This is the kind of inspired community spirit which we need, and will make Ballycastle a more attractive place for local residents and for tourists visiting the area, it has the potential to provide support for existing business and to attract new ones.” “The project really wants to make some things happen – they don’t want to wait, but want to act and to help encourage change.”
