Alderman Stewart McDonald’s delight as Ahoghill claims Best Kept Crown

Ahoghill

ALDERMAN Stewart McDonald’s has expressed his delight after Ahoghill won a ‘Best Kept’ crown.

The TUV councillor said: “I am delighted that Ahoghill has been crowned Best Kept Large Village in the Northern Ireland Amenity Council Awards. Not only that but we have been named as Best of the Best – the overall award covering all of Northern Ireland!

“This accolade recognised the general appearance and cleanliness to open spaces and natural environment in the village as well as the absence of rubbish and vandalism.

“It is an award in which we can all take pride in because without the cooperation of the community in maintaining a high standard in the village this award wouldn’t have been won.

“Generally I’m not a fan of things all-Ireland but even I will be cheering on Ahoghill as we progress to the 2020 All Ireland competition for the title of best kept on the island.”
