Community input on Glens of Antrim’s £1.8m Lottery funding

The nine Glens of Antrim which will receive £1.8m as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund's Landscape Partnership Scheme will set up a series of workshops to take on board views and suggestions from the public on how to spend it.

Taking place in numerous venues around the area; from Londonderry to Cushendall, the workshops will invite people to discuss their concerns, needs and demands for the area and also give them the opportunity to suggest changes.

Talking to the Ballycastle Chronicle, Sarah Irwin, LPS manager, said: “I anticipate a good turnout of local people at the workshops because I recognise the passion that the Glens people have for their area and they will value the exciting opportunities and the huge economic and environmental impact that this scheme can deliver to the Glens of Antrim.”

For more information on the workshops or the scheme, members of the community can contact Sarah Irwin on 02820752100 or email
