17.  Notice of Motion proposed by Alderman S McKillop, Seconded by Alderman Fielding referred from the 4th May Council Meeting:

      ‘That this council recognises Bobby Greer and his extraordinary contribution to the Bushmills’ community. Whilst Bobby was a humble and unassuming individual, his love and commitment to the entire Bushmills’ community was renowned and tireless. Specifically, Bobby was a ‘leading light’ in the fund-raising efforts and development of Bushmills’ United Football Club. Furthermore, his moral and ethical characteristics were an example to all, not just in football, but as a         community leader. Bobby was also instrumental in securing the football pitch at Dundarave for future generations of Bushmills United. Following his sad passing in 2020, Bobby was described in the Antrim Guardian as an ‘absolute legend’ and ‘the kindest and most caring person. In recognition of Bobby’s life and his commitment and contribution to Bushmills, this Council names the Dundarave Sports Facility as the Bobby Greer Sports Complex, installing appropriate           signage. To upgrade the site, officers investigate the options, with the intention of installing floodlighting at both the sports pitch and MUGA’

18.  Any other relevant business notified in accordance with Standing Order 12. (o)

Alderman Fielding

(i) That Council consults with Residents & Key groups within the Portstewart area to ascertain the needs of the community going forward.
