The long awaited Sally Gardens Play Park was officially opened on the 25th June 2012.
Special guests at the official launch included Jennifer McCann MLA – Junior Minister OFDFM, Alderman William Leathem – Mayor of Lisburn and Councillor Thomas Beckett – Chairman of the Leisure Services Committee.
The large turnout also included representatives of Sally Gardens Community Centre, Colin Neighbourhood Partnership, the Alpha Programme and Groundwork Northern Ireland.
A combination of funding from Lisburn City Council, Colin Neighbourhood Partnership and Groundwork NI has provided an essential facility for the Colin area.
Young people from the Colin area enjoyed a fun packed trip to Newcastle on 7th August 2012 as part of Sally Gardens Summer Intervention.
A big thank you to Translink, particularly Kevin Wallace Community Safety Officer for making the day educational and fun.
Sally Gardens Senior Citizens Club joined forces with young people from the Bytes Project in an intergenerational project.
Youth Justice supported the project, providing young people with the opportunity to explore issues that matter most to Senior Citizens living in the Colin area.
The project has certainly improved relations between young people and senior citizens and feedback from both groups highlighted the need to build on the positive work.
