Meakstown Community Council

Very positive meeting on Tuesday night with residents in Meakstown. The formation of a Meakstown Community Council has started and the hope is to have a strong committee with representatives of each of the estates in the area. Having a strong community based group will mean that community funding can be applied for such as the summer projects. It also gives a focus to campaigns such as a school for the area and the development of a community centre. Myself, Duncan and Philip will continue to work for the area and bring the issues to the Council. However having a Community Council will make a difference as well.
