Great British High Street judges tour the town

Great British High Street judges who visited Ballymena recently pictured with BID manager Kathleen McBride, Trevor Parker (BRAC Manager), the Mayor and Tracey Campbell (MEA).

Ballymena, along with Carrickfergus in Mid and East Antrim, have been nominated in the ‘Rising Star’ category of the GBHS 2019, recognising the nation’s most ambitious high streets which are taking the lead and working together to revive, adapt and diversify.
