Mayor says huge ‘Thank You’ to all ‘Game On’ participants
24 April 2018
Mayor McHugh met with representatives from the Culmore Community Partnership, local residents and young people from the Culmore area in the grounds of Hollybush Primary School.
Young people aged 14-18 were invited to attend and enjoy a chill out zone, gaming, cage football, burgers and ice-cream.
The final event formed a part of the Mayor’s initiative – a programme of ‘Game On’ events taking place the length and breadth of the city & district since February 2018 – when young people had the opportunity to take part in fun activities while also identifying what they would like to see in future.
Mayor Mc Hugh said: “I had a really great time at the final ‘Game On’ event in Culmore – including my attempts to ‘flip’ some burgers!
“Throughout my term in office, I have been engaging with young people throughout the city & district who will be responsible for shaping the future of Derry & Strabane.
“Indeed, I have been delighted to hear from all of them during the course of this wonderful series of events!
“I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to all of the young people who participated in this programme.
“I would also like to pay a special tribute to all of the community & voluntary sector organisations who have been involved in – and have fully embraced – this hugely successful initiative.”
The information gathered in each area is being used to tailor a programme of activities based on the young people’s responses. For further information visit www.gameonyouth.com
