Mid & East Antrim Councillors are to take part in the 50th anniversary Charter Celebrations of Ballymena Lions Club in the town next month.

Members of the local authority’s Economic Growth and Development Committee agreed at their latest meeting to take a table of eight at the event in the Adair Arms Hotel on October 2 and approved the hosting of a Mayoral reception for two visiting Lions from Gibraltar on the same date.

It was pointed out by a Council officer that Ballymena Lions Club supports a range of projects in the local community and is involved in raising funds for good causes.

Members also heard that supporting the charity would link into Council’s strategy priority of ‘Building stronger, safe and healthy communities’ and that funds are available within Democratic Representation budget for the purchase of tickets for the anniversary event.
