The Wall!

Work continues to replace the hard front wall at the hall with the new, green replacement. The beds are made and soil put in, now awaiting the arrival of the estate fencing, trees and hedging plants to complete. Under the Village Renewal Scheme work started on Monday 11th October to knock down the wall at the Village Hall and replace it with estate fencing and a hedge and trees. The area is fenced off but please take great care when using the carpark over the next few weeks.

NI Centenary Trees

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.

Suspicious Vehicles

We have had a number of reports of strange or suspicious vehicles being parked up for long periods in various locations, sometimes very early in the morning or late at night. If you notice this type of activity and are concerned about it, take a note of the registration and ring Police on 101 to have it checked out.
