When Stephen McCreery was first diagnosed with diabetes he received a lot of help and support from Diabetes UK, so much so that he decided to give something back.

He and his wife Lucy held a Masquerade Ball in the Europa Hotel and were delighted with the support they received from family and friends, raising thousands of pounds for the charity into the bargain.

You cannot have failed to have noticed the number of wind turbines and solar panels appearing around the country proving that renewable energy is growing in popularity and that was also reflected with more entries than ever being received at the seventh annual Action Renewables Association Awards, not surprisingly given the amount of cost savings businesses can make by going green.

Ten local businesses and organisations were recognised at the ceremony in the Belfast Harbour Commissioners Office.

The Filthy Quarter is holding its first ever festival this weekend in conjunction with MOTH and at the launch the organisers of The Filthy Series promised that Chapter One would be the first of many.

On May 2-3, many international artists will be appearing at the Dublin Road venue including Katy B and Too Many DJs. Roll on Chapter Two.
