A £220,000 aid package to improve the appearance of shops and businesses in Carrickfergus town centre has been announced by the Communities Minister.

The revitalisation scheme will see the installation of new shop frontages and will be complemented by marketing and publicity.

The areas set to benefit include Upper North Street, Antrim Street, High Street, Lancastrian Street and Irish Quarter West.

Minister Paul Givan said: "Carrickfergus has much to offer tourists, visitors and shoppers and this investment builds on the success of other schemes funded by my department in the town, including major public realm works.

Mid and East Antrim Mayor Audrey Wales MBE said: "The investment of £220,000, the bulk of which is coming from the Department for Communities includes £20,000 from Mid and East Antrim Borough Council. This is a great investment."
