NIHE supports a fun day in Magheramason
Magheramason Community Association held a fun day in the village earlier this month thanks to our support.
The local community group received funding from our Community Cohesion Unit to run a range of multicultural activities.
Children and adults were able to sample foods from around the world, take part in carnival games and try out a range of sports.
Susan McElwee, from Magheramason Community Association, said:
“This event was a great chance for people to learn more about other cultures, socialise with their neighbours and have some fun.
“Magheramason has a great community spirit and everyone really enjoyed themselves on the day.
“The Housing Executive has been very supportive and it thanks to them that we are able to make events like this possible.”
Eddie Breslin, one of our Good Relations Officers, said:
“This event was a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages to come together to socialise and try new things.
“I am delighted that Magheramason Community Association were able to use our funding this event we are able to help local people showcase how welcoming and diverse the village is.”
