Sally Gardens Play Park now open

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.

Intergenerational Project

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.

Drugs Awareness Programme

Fifteen young people benefited from a drugs awareness programme facilitated by Ascert.

Over a number of sessions, young people received information on the negative aspects of drug/alcohol misuse, focusing on mental health implications and building confidence to resist peer pressure.

The sessions had been extremely informative, reinforcing the need to engage in a positive lifestyle.
