Community Groups Get Set for Christmas Across Lisburn & Castlereagh

Community Groups Get Set for Christmas Across Lisburn & Castlereagh

November 14, 2017

With Christmas just around the corner, local community groups are getting ready to switch on their Christmas Tree Lights across the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council Area.


Under the Council’s Community Christmas Tree Grants Scheme, nineteen local groups have been working with the Council to organise Community Switch On events, which will begin on the Friday 24th November 2017 and run through to Wednesday 13th December 2017 across the City.


Recognising the efforts of all involved, Chairman of the Council’s Leisure and Community Development Committee, Alderman James Tinsley said: “Community groups have been working extremely hard to enable residents, both young and old, to enjoy the magic of Christmas in their local area and bring a real sense of community spirit to the festive season.  The Council is delighted to provide funding for these events and support groups in their efforts to bring Christmas celebrations to the heart of local communities.  I would like to thank those involved for organising these events and look forward to celebrating Christmas right across the Council area.”
