Community and voluntary workers from across the borough joined with the Mayor and other dignitaries at a recent Christmas celebration.
Approximately 150 guests attended the special event at Mossley Mill. The attendees were addressed by a number of speakers including Lord Lieutenant for County Antrim, Mrs Joan Christie OBE.
Mayor of Dorsten, Tobias Stockhoff and Mayor of Rybnik, Piotr Kuczera were special guests at the event.
Prior to the Christmas celebration, the visiting Mayors joined the Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Thomas Hogg, for the official signing of the Twinning partnership agreements.
Councillor Hogg commented, “I was delighted to welcome such a diverse range of community and voluntary workers to this event. It is important that we recognise the efforts that our community and voluntary workers put in to making our borough a place in which people want to work, live and invest.”
The event raised around £650 for the Mayor’s three charities: ABF The Soldier’s Charity, Autism NI and the Cancer Fund For Children. For more information on the Mayor’s charities, visit the council website.
