Mayor's Reception for local CAN group

Wed, May 23, 2018

Members of the Causeway Coast and Glens CAN Group have enjoyed a Civic reception in Cloonavin.

CAN is a user led, campaigning network of people who are blind or partially sighted, and their allies.

The event hosted by the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird OBE, was a celebration of the group’s ongoing campaign to make services in our area more accessible for everyone.

This RNIB funded project enables people at local and regional level to lobby on issues that affect them and to bring about real social change.

Speaking afterwards, the Mayor said: “I was delighted to personally acknowledge the ongoing work that CAN do in the Causeway Coast and Glen’s area. The group have built up an excellent working relationship with Council over the past two years, thus ensuring that our facilities can be accessed and enjoyed by all. The group meet monthly and have worked with Council on a number of projects including ‘Portrush Public Realm Scheme’ and ‘Pavement Cafes’. I look forward to our relationship continuing in the future.”
