Tue, February 14, 2023
A special reception has taken place in Cloonavin for Lord Lieutenants, Vice Lord Lieutenants and Deputy Lieutenants of County Antrim and County Londonderry.
The event, hosted by the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, was organised in recognition of their role as His Majesty’s personal representative and ambassador for the area.
Thanking all those who were in attendance, the Mayor, Councillor Ivor Wallace, said: “Council has an excellent relationship with the Lord Lieutenants and Deputies who are connected to our Borough, and since taking up the position of Mayor I have been fortunate to meet with some of them at official engagements.
“The event in Cloonavin was an opportunity to bring all of our Borough’s representatives together, which doesn’t often happen, and to recognise the honour and significance attached to their positions.
“As Mayor, I would like to express my gratitude for the work they do, including the support they offer to many of Council’s civic activities where their presence is greatly appreciated.
“The recent passing of HM The Queen helped to highlight the importance of our links, bringing us together to coordinate the marking of this unprecedented occasion in our area while the coronation of HM The King later this year will provide further opportunities for collaboration which I am greatly looking forward to.”
