School children from Ballysally Primary School were out in force recently to help us as we embark on a major planting scheme on the Coleraine estate.
The pupils lent a helping hand to the organisation’s Chief Executive, Mags Lightbody, during her recent visit to the town and to the Ballysally Estate.
Almost 900 shrubs and trees are being planted on the estate as part of an environmental improvement scheme at Elms Park, Loughanhill Park and Ballygalling Park.
192 trees of various species will be planted as well as 644 shrubs and herbaceous plants, at a cost of £62,000. It is expected to be completed by the end of this month.
Mark Alexander, Area Manager of Causeway, said:
“We would like to thank the children from Ballysally Primary School for taking part and helping us out on the day.  
“This investment forms an integral part of our plans for the physical and social regeneration of the Ballysally estate.”
