Balmoral Show 2015
Published: Fri, 8 May 2015
Last year over 850 people visited our stand at the Balmoral Show with a range of enquiries.
During their visit they found out how, for over 40 years, we have put the rural community at the centre of our work.
This year our Rural Team is back in the DARD pavilion and the stand is located near the marquee’s main entrance. We will be there to answer questions on testing for housing need in rural areas, how we manage the development of new homes, give guidance on home improvement grants and how we help people live independently at home for longer.
Director for Regional Services, Siobhan McCauley, is delighted with the Rural Unit’s continued participation at Balmoral Show commenting:
“Our team for this year’s show has lots of information on what we do in rural communities. I would encourage anyone attending Balmoral Show 2015 to pop along to the DARD pavilion and visit our stand. We’ll have a wealth of information on new housing schemes, grants available for the home, including boiler replacement and adaptations, on how to form/join an oil buying club and to take note of our tips on decreasing energy costs.”
We are the strategic authority for housing in Northern Ireland; the needs of those living within rural parts of Northern Ireland are at the heart of our work.
