An Alliance Party representative has congratulated the organisers of the Country Comes to Town.
Peter Lavery said: “I wish to comment on the recent “The Countryside Comes to Town” event, particularly the part held in the People’s Park.
“On behalf of the local Alliance Party association I would like to give congratulations to the event organisers as it was very well run, well organised and enjoyed by all ages that attended.
“Once again goes to show that the idea of ‘shared space’, as opposed to shared out space, which everybody can take advantage of and enjoy is not an illusion.
“This is the type of event that is non contentious and neither offends or touches on the feelings of anybody. I hope this will encourage more cross-community groups and indeed local people in general to take advantage of going to, and holding events in the park before it closes and is refurbished early in the new year.”
