Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has welcomed the Council’s appointment of the principal contractor for the pitch and play park project at Shaw Court in Ballymagroarty.
Councillor McGinley said: “The announcement of the contractor’s appointment will be warmly welcomed by the community in Ballymagroarty. It represents a highly significant step towards the realisation of a much needed facility for the area and is a testament to the hard work carried out by the Ballymagroarty Community Association in partnership with Derry City & Strabane District Council.
The resources for the pitch and play park largely came from the Executive’s Social Investment Fund which was driven by Martin McGuinness and the project will be a fitting legacy when it is completed.
I am delighted to have been involved in supporting the development of this project on behalf of Sinn Féin and I look forward to the very near future when the children of the area can at last access first class play facilities.”
