Ballymoney WI members enjoy a visit to Cloonavin

Members of Ballymoney Women’s Institute recently enjoyed a visit to Cloonavin.

They were welcomed by the Mayor, Councillor Ivor Wallace, who gave those in attendance a brief tour of the Council’s headquarters, including the Council Chamber before taking part in a ‘question and answer’ session.

Speaking afterwards he said: “I was very pleased to have this opportunity to meet with Ballymoney WI and find out more about the group’s activities.

“They have a long history in the town, and it’s encouraging to see this continuing.”
