Opening of community garden at Barr’s Lane -McGinley

Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has welcomed the opening of a community garden in the Barr’s Lane area of Hazelbank.

Cllr. McGinley said: “In the recent past Barr’s Lane would have been subject to a considerable level of disruptive behaviour and the area identified for the garden would have been particularly affected.

As a result of a collective effort involving residents, community groups and the Housing Executive an initiative was developed to transform a problem space into a welcoming place in the form of a community garden.

Projects such as this not only enhance the appearance of an area but also serve to bring residents together for a common purpose and I would take this opportunity to welcome the opening of the garden.”
