Praise has been heaped on Taghnevan Community Development Association after another successful year serving the community.

As the Association held it’s AGM on Wednesday night, Cllr Liam Mackle thanked the hard work and commitment of all the staff.

“The youth club is now open at the weekend and a full-time extended provision worker has been employed,” said Cllr Mackle who praised the very successful summer scheme. He added that young people had benefited from awareness programmes on the risks of drugs, alcohol and sexual health.

“As well as catering for the youth of the area the Centre has a busy Play Group and has well attended senior citizens programmes. Plus the Association is involved in the development of allotments for use by the local community. They deserve a lot of credit for their hard work and I wish them continued success in the future,” said Cllr Mackle.
