Meeting with David Simpson

 ds

Stella Cunningham and Neil Harrison of Waringstown Community Development Association (WCDA) recently met with David Simpson MP to discuss how life in Waringstown could be improved for local residents.  Stella Cunningham, WCDA Chairperson, said after the meeting, "We were pleased to have an opportunity to meet with Mr Simpson and Cllr Carla Lockhart.  We pointed out that although Waringstown is generally seen as an affluent area, there is a lack of community facilities and activities which can lead to social isolation, anti-social behaviour and other difficulties.  However, we did not just focus on the downside, we also took the opportunity to ensure that local politicians are made aware of all the hard work being done by local people to make Waringstown a good place to live.

The last meeting of 2014

Dr John Dunlop was the speaker at Waringstown Historical Society's last meeting of 2014. Dr Dunlop and his wife Rosemary were the guests of the Society where Dr Dunlop addressed the meeting on 'What Legacy Do We Leave Our Children?'. Dr Dunlop challenged the audience to think about how we view and use history and the importance of building bridges with people who may have a different construction of history.

The Society's next meeting will be in February 2015. Details of the programme will be posted on www.waringstown.org
