The Deputy Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor John Blair, opened the first in a series of ‘Meet and Greet’ events at Mossley Mill recently.

The event was organised by Social Enterprise NI to stimulate the ongoing engagement between councils and the social enterprise sector to promote good practice and provide networking opportunities.

Councillor Blair commented: “Social enterprises face similar challenges to private business owners in our borough and they deserve to be able to access similar levels of support and assistance that are available. It is great that events like this take place to give us an insight into the valuable contribution that Social Enterprises make to our local economy.”
