On Thursday last week (16 November) the North East Area Council marked a significant milestone as it celebrated a decade of impactful community development.
Over the past ten years, the North East Area Council has been the foundation of community development, fostering partnerships and initiatives aimed at enhancing the quality of life for our residents.
A gathering on Thursday brought together volunteers and partners to celebrate all the great achievements and remarkable contributions to the local area. From revitalising public spaces to empowering local initiatives and delivering services for children and young people, each contribution has been instrumental in creating a stronger, cleaner, greener, and more prosperous environment.
Lisa Phelan, North East Area Council Manager, said: "Passion and selfless contributions shown by the volunteers and partners have significantly impacted our community, positively influencing the lives of our residents, and we can't thank them enough."
Cllr Wendy Cain, Cabinet Spokesperson for Public Health and Communities, said: "For a decade, the North East Area Council has been at the forefront of encouraging progress and rallying individuals and organisations committed to fostering positive change within the area.
“This celebration is a testament to the power of collaboration and the unwavering spirit of our volunteers and partners."
As the North East Area Council looks ahead, it remains committed to nurturing an environment where collaboration thrives. The legacy of community-driven progress and great achievements, established over the past decade, will endure for years to come.
