An early summer solstice walk to remember! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side this morning but the company made up for the rain! Thanks to Aghalee Village Hall for the breakfast on our return! (Cllr. Sian Mulholland)
Thanks to everyone who turned out on a horrible morning for the walk. Thanks to all the volunteers also who made the walk possible.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported our Afternoon Tea yesterday. A special thank you to those who helped - Kerry, Suzanne, Andrea and Pauline - none of it would have been possible without you. And a massive thank you to Fiona Maree who baked and baked and baked and organised the whole thing!
What a day! We had our Jubilee Tea Party and it was a fantastic afternoon. Thanks to a grant from Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council we were able to treat seventy people over 70 to a delicious tea of home made sandwiches, scones and buns. The Mayor of Lisburn, Stephen Martin, came along to say hello, as did Councillor Thomas Beckett.
As always, we couldn't hold these events without our willing volunteers. A huge thank you to Lorraine, Susan, Libby, Michael, Asher, Katherine, Pauline and Fiona for all your hard work.

Council completes improvements to Aghalee village
March 24, 2022
Phase 2 of the Village Improvement Scheme in Aghalee Village has recently been completed. The scheme, which was delivered by Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council (LCCC) and funded through the NI Rural Development Programme, has revamped the grounds at the village hall with the removal of the old wall and the installation of estate fencing and landscaping.
Aghalee Village Hall funded drainage works and a replacement fence and the resurfacing of the car park to compliment and complete the works was undertaken by Aghalee Village Hall and partly funded through the council's Community Facility Fund with the remainder being funded by the Village Hall.
Lewis Trevithick, Chairman of Aghalee Village Hall said: "We are delighted with the works that have been undertaken through this scheme. It has really improved the conditions around the hall and brightens up the centre of the village. The hall is extremely well used and we are so pleased to have been included in this scheme."
Alderman Grehan, Chair of LCCC's Development Committee, commented: "The council is delighted to have been able to undertake these works. The village is looking really well, especially in the beautiful sunshine this morning.
''The Village Renewal Scheme has played an important role in delivering improvements across the rural villages in our council area and I believe it's so very important that we continue to support our small villages."

NI Centenary Trees
Our journey to see the NI Centenary trees took us to Aghalee Playing Fields where seven trees were planted as part of our NI Centenary Programme! First Minister Paul Givan was in attendance and commented: "Much thought and effort has gone into a diverse and inclusive programme which encapsulates many themes and age ranges and I commend the council for their foresight."
He was joined by Mayor Alderman Stephen Martin , Chair of the NI Centenary Working Group Councillor Scott Carson, Alderman James Tinsley and Councillor Thomas Beckett.
Chair of the Aghalee Village Hall committee Lewis Trevithick and local residents Amanda McGrath and Eilidh Duncan are delighted with the new additions.
100 Red Twigged Lime trees have been planted across Lisburn & Castlereagh in nine different parks all adding to our green spaces as part of the Council’s commitment to our local environment and wider biodiversity.
