RATH Community Group, public meeting

Yesterday evening members of Dalaradia attended a public meeting in the Dunanney Centre facilitated by a new community group in Rathcoole, the RATH. Community Group.

RATH is a sub group of Dalaradia and is in its infancy and merely a few months old. Various members of the local community attended with a lot of issues discussed including the groups aims and ambitions along with concerns from the wider community.

A big thank you must go to Robert Foster of the UUP and Dean McCullough of the DUP who attended as guest speakers. Also thank you to Adree Wallace for speaking on the night explaining the aims of the Fuse project, a facilitator of the RATH group.

Other groups in attendance was Rathcoole Regeneration, Newtownabbey PSNI policing team, Listening Ear and Funkykidsworkshop.

Thank you to everyone who attended and we will continue to try make a positive impact in our community. A big well done to the RATH committee, they are a credit to their community and hopefully this will be the start of great things to come for Rathcoole.
