17. Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor McQuillan, seconded by Councillor Peacock
I propose a motion that in line with sport and wellbeing that a grant programme is created to encourage and facilitate local sporting organisations to specifically help the mental health and wellbeing in the causeway coast and glens area.
I propose the grant and funding unit look into the expense of the creation of this grant. Already partnering with the trust on various mental health projects this would broadening our outreach.

18. Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Kyle, seconded by Councillor Jonathan McAuley 
That Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council recognises the exemplary 70 years of service rendered by the late Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as the United Kingdom’s longest reigning monarch.
We are also very proud that the Late Monarch visited our Borough 5 times between 1953 and 2016, in which she included the unveiling of sergeant Robert Quigg VC statue in Bushmills, within my own constituency, which was to be her last visit.
In recognition of her shining example of exemplary selfless service, we the undersigned propose that a substantial permanent memorial be commissioned and located within the Borough and be in situ before or during 2026.  We believe that the memorial should depict Queen Elizabeth II during her coronation and that ideally it would be located in a prominent and visible location.
We further propose that officers prepare a report, taking this matter forward, to include options for design, location, consultation with appropriate groups and identification of a suitable budget as part of the estimates process.

This Statue will be a fitting tribute by the people of the Borough to the late Monarch, whose service to our country may never be matched again.

19. Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Holmes, seconded by Alderman Knight-McQuillan, Councillor C Archibald, Councillor Bateson and Councillor Huggins
Garvagh Development Trust was established in 1997 as a registered charity and owns and runs the B1 listed GADDA building at 85 Main Street, Garvagh. The building acts as a community hub, directly employing 8 people and a total of 33 people work in the various businesses located within the premises and 400 people use the building weekly. Recently GDT ran the successful Forestry School. 
GDT now find themselves in a critical financial situation due to loss in funding sources, grant income and rising costs, particularly in relation to power, oil and insurance. 
The business model needs to be urgently reviewed but to give them the space to do this they need a cash injection. 
This motion requests a £20,000 loan be provided to GDT and delegates authority to officers to agree interest rate, repayment terms and security. A business recovery plan should be presented to officers and councillors within 3 months of this council meeting
