May 2009: North Down Alliance prepare for series of Summer events

The Executive Committee for the North Down Association of the Alliance Party met on Monday 18 May 2009 in Bangor and discussed a wide range of issues.

The Association finalised details of a number of exciting fundraising events to take place during the Summer including a Barbeque and Summer Fair.

Whilst most of the meeting focused on the forthcoming European Parliamentary Elections time was spent addressing other matters.

Alderman Marsden Fitzsimmons updated those present on the Castle Park Walled Garden with a great turnout at the recent official opening. 

The new plans for Queens Parade were given a generally positive reception with an update provided in relation to the Department for Social Development’s ongoing work to devise a Master plan for Bangor.

The recent renewable energy grant for the new leisure centre was warmly welcomed.

North Down Alliance MLA Stephen Farry also updated members on current developments at Stormont with all in agreement that the Executive should be taking more decisive action on important matters such as post primary transfer.
