North Down Alliance Insight

This month I provide another insight into The Alliance Party in North Down.

December 2008: North Down Alliance prepare for 2009

With Christmas fast approaching The Alliance Party’s North Down Association Executive Committee met on Monday 8 December 2008 to plan future activity during 2009.

A wide ranging list of possible fundraising events for 2009 were discussed with agreement that a definitive programme of events should be finalised at the Association AGM in January 2009.

Those present at the recent Party Council meeting in Newtownards expressed the opinion that the meeting had been extremely positive focusing on the real issues facing the people of Northern Ireland.

Local elected representatives provided an update on recent issues such as the problems currently being experienced at the new recycling facilities provided by North Down Borough Council.

The economic downturn was also discussed with a general feeling that NI Executive has failed to react promptly and effectively by, for example, bringing forward many capital projects to help the construction sector.

The meeting concluded with a brief discussion concerning plans for the Association AGM in January 2009.
