The city centre is getting a techy boost after the Social Development Minister announced major funding for Lisburn.

The Mayor has teed off a new round of fundraising for the Lagan Valley Diabetes Unit and the Star follows Lisburn man Jonny Hanson who is off to the Himalayas in search of the elusive snow leopard.

We also have a host of picture specials as local people make the most of the Easter holidays. Don’t miss our features on the Pond Park community enjoying their Easter celebrations, the Circuit of Ireland rally coming to Lisburn and the city centre churches coming together to mark this special time of year with a Walk of Witness and an Easter Sunday dawn service.

In sport, the Star talks to Lisburn Cricket captain David Simpson ahead of the start of the new season on Saturday.
