IN this week’s Newtownabbey Times:

Snow chaos brings winter misery for many thousands across the borough.

We have full coverage of the Arctic conditions that descended during the past week which closed schools, cancelled events and left thousands without power.

Community spirit really did shine through with neighbours taking to the streets to help each other, farmers using their own equipment to help their communities and NIE staff working in treacherous conditions to restore power.

Also this week, the Roads Service is to carry out vital repairs to a bridge in Mallusk.

Calls made for tougher punishments on fly-tippers.

And its many happy returns for Alderman Billy DeCourcy as he celebrates his upcoming 80th birthday with his council colleagues.

In pictures we have Ballylinney GB display, Fortwilliam Musical Society on stage and Ballyclare High School honours.

And in sport:

We are on the road to Ravehill with Ballyclare Rugby Club as they gear up for their Easter Monday Towns’ Cup final clash with City of Derry II.

Crucial double-header for the Comrades.

And Templepatrick Cricket Club prepares for new season.
