Lighting up Ards Town Hall for LGBT Awareness Week positive progress towards an inclusive Borough

Ards Town Hall was illuminated in Rainbow colours on Monday 13 May 2019 to mark the start of LGBT Awareness Week.

I warmly welcome this small but important step after initially making the proposal last year.

Lighting up Ards Town Hall in Rainbow colours by Ards and North Down Borough Council as part of efforts to mark LGBT Awareness Week helps us to build a truly inclusive Borough for everyone reaching out to LGBT citizens, their family, friends and colleagues making it known they are valued and welcome members of our society. 

With the proposal passed by only one vote I would like to thank all the Councillors who voted in favour and look forward to yet further progress by the Council towards building a Borough which embraces and positively celebrates diversity.
