Councillor Cooper said “Back in November I was pleased to welcome the news that the area in around the new Pavilion in Brooke Park was  to be used for a Christmas event entitled Tales & Trails.

 I had been working with council officials for some time to identify funding opportunities for programmes in Derry and Strabane to allow these type of events to take place. And was delighted that the council approved a funding package of £15,000 for Christmas programmes across the five Neighbourhood renewal areas in Derry and Strabane.

Sundays event was an outstanding success with hundreds of people of all ages in attendance.It was great to see Christmas being brought into Brooke Park and getting such an event right into the heart of local communities .I would like to thank everyone involved in making it such a success and hope that more events can be staged in the surrounds of the park in the times ahead.
