The Antrim Town Team and Antrim District Electoral Area councillors, have been working hard behind the scenes to help improve the gateway entrance into Antrim.

The walls of Antrim Police Station were selected as the perfect place to promote key attractions of the town centre.

Along with the key attraction graphics, a cross community art project with local schools, Antrim Primary and St. Comgall’s Primary took place with artist Janet Crymble.

The artwork they designed, which can be seen on the corner of the police station walls, brings to life how the children see Antrim, full of history and heritage.

Speaking at the unveiling of the school art project, Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Paul Michael, said: “We hope to draw more people to visit Antrim through this project, help increase a sense of pride in our town and strengthen the sense of community.

“Everyone can have fun picking out relevant images in the art and visit these places as they make their way around the town.”
