Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has welcomed the joint initiative by Moyle Council’s Tourism and Community Services sections who have teamed up to introduce some exciting changes to its grants programme for Community Festivals and Tourism Events for this incoming 2013-14 year.

Cllr Cunningham who is a member of the Council’s Grant panel particularly welcomed the new flexibility between the programmes “Festivals make a significant contribution to communities and to the local economy. I fully support the rationale behind the introduction of a new Small Tourism Events Grant aimed at events that will create an economic benefit and encourage people to stay in the local area.

I would encourage anyone interested in organising a Community Festival or Tourist Event which would attract visitors to the area to come along to one of the following information sessions.”

Ballycastle: Wed 27th Feb, 7pm Sheskburn House,

Bushmills: Thurs 28th Feb, 2pm, Community Centre

Cushendall: Mon 4th March, 7pm, Old School House
