IN TWO years time the four Councils of Coleraine, Limavady, Moyle and Ballymoney will come together to form a new Causeway Coast and Glens Council.

All councils have a responsibility for community services and support which includes capacity building, networking, resourcing the sector and information provision.

Currently each council has different service provisions however, all have the same core aspects to their work.

Each Council wants to involve community and voluntary groups and other interested individuals in the preparation of the new framework which will help shape how the new Council will support communities and community groups in the future.

The public is therefore being invited to attend any of the following workshops:

* Thursday, February 28: 2.30-4.00pm Limavady Borough Council; 6.00-7.30pm Coleraine Town Hall.

* Wednesday, March 6: 1.30-3.00pm Joey Dunlop Centre, Ballymoney; 6.30-8.00pm Sheskburn House, Ballycastle.

To book a place at any of the workshops please contact Community Places on 028 9023 9444 or email louise@communityplaces.info Please include your name orgroup’s name and details of any access or support needs.
