Whitemountain and District Community Association are holding a special evening with ‘The Digger’ on Monday, November 23 at the Bridge Community Centre at 7.30pm.
It will be followed by their Annual General meeting at 8pm and will be an opportunity for locals to hear from ‘The Digger’ about his own research of the Whitemountain and surrounding area.
Ooutgoing chairperson of the association John Belshaw, said, “November 23 is going to be an excellent night when we will hear about some aspects of the Whitemountain history that folks that live there probably have never heard of.
“‘The Digger’ is well known to readers of The Ulster Star for his very informative narratives.
“We hope residents from the area can come along to this special pre-AGM talk and the AGM itself.
“The introduction of a new Whitemountain Ward is a significant change and we have plenty of plans for some big ‘events’ next year following on from the successes of a range of information leaflets on the area that the association is linked to. Our most recent ‘Townlands’ leaflet and our Limestone Way tourism initiative project is just the tip of what could be developed for our area.”
”Whitemountain and District Community Association aims to help connect together residents of the areas bounded by Sheepwalk Rd, Pond Park Rd, Beanstown, Glenavy Rd and Whinney Hill in the townlands of the Whitemountain, Aghnahough, Beanstown, Ballyclough and surrounding areas just North of the city.
