Councillor says site is welcome

SINN Féin Councillor Liam Mackle welcomed the launch of Lurgan Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s new website.

Mr Mackle, who attended the official launch of the new site on Monday night, said: “Through this new website the Chamber of Commerce and Industry are seeking to move the social and economic life of the town forward by drawing together the commercial, community and sporting aspects of Lurgan at one easy accessible internet site.”

The Councillor commended the Chamber for their positive attitude in the work that they had and were doing.

He said: “The Chamber understands the need to portray Lurgan in a positive light, as a town that is welcoming to everyone, and their new website will convey that message.

“It is important that all groupings and organisations with a genuine interest in the future of the area promote this message and move us away from the negative image portrayed by the annual coat trailing, territorialism associated with the months of July and August.

“If Lurgan is to play an important role in the commercial life of Craigavon District it must be accessible and welcoming to all sections of the local community.”
