TUV councillor Alderman Stewart McDonald has highlighted a half term youth event in Ahoghill.

The councillor said: “On Thursday 20th February there will be a half term youth event in Brookfield Gardens, Ahoghill, at the Gaming Bus NI.

“The aim is to let teenagers, parents and the wider community have their say about how best to tackle the social issues which face us. The event will run from noon to 4pm.

“With the PSNI, Start 360 and Turning Point NI in attendance throughout, this is a chance for the local community to express their views on how they believe we can address the challenges which confront us.

“Turning Point NI helps people with parenting, employability, mental health, drug problems and other issues.

“Turning Point NI is a local organisation which deals with suicide prevention and support, offering a service which supports and comforts on a 1:1 basis either on the telephone or through a walk-in service, to help people manage when in crisis.

“Then in the evening there will be a screening of Inside Out at 8pm in Ahoghill Community Centre. Come along and enjoy a very entertaining film and some popcorn – all free of charge.”
