08 February 2021
Derry City and Strabane District Council are delighted to be part of a campaign celebrating the key role that councils play in everyday lives, said Mayor Brian Tierney.
The Northern Ireland Local Government Association in partnership with all 11 local councils across NI have today launched the 'Councils Make It Happen' campaign which will run until this summer, focusing on how councils provide essential services and support their communities across a wide range of sectors, including the environment, economy, wellbeing and future planning.
Mayor of Derry and Strabane, Cllr Brian Tierney, said: "As a council we are delighted to be involved in this campaign with NILGA, highlighting the crucial role that local councils play, something which has been particularly significant in this past year.
"It's an opportunity to showcase the wide range of services and sectors that we cover as a local council, and also to celebrate our frontline workers who are delivering these important services day in and day out.
"I would encourage everyone to check out the campaign to see the great work going on within our council, and get involved online using the hashtag #councilsmakeithappen."
