North Down Alliance embarks on busy Autumn programme

The North Down Alliance Executive Committee met last week for a well attended meeting discussing fundraising, activism, Local Government and Assembly affairs.

Thanks were expressed to all those who helped with the organisation of the Summer Fair with Association Treasurer Chris Mackey reporting that the Summer Fair raised a substantial amount of money and that the Association was well on the way to meeting its Fundraising targets for the year.

Association Chair Andrew Muir explained that a number of other events were in the pipeline over the next few months including: a table-quiz jointly organised with Strangford Association on 5 November at 7.30pm, a Coffee Morning celebrating the 40 anniversary of the founding of the Alliance Party on Saturday 9 October hosted by Stephen Farry MLA, a Wine Tasting event and an evening to discuss Mental Health policy.

Dr Stephen Farry MLA gave members an update on Assembly business and an update on North Down Borough Council business was given by each of the Councillors in attendance. Newly appointed Alliance Councillor Andrew Muir thanked everyone for the confidence that the Association bestowed on him by selecting him as Councillor and stated that he is enjoying his new role.
