A major fund-raising event in Stranocum on Saturday, July 9, will go towards the building of a new Orange Hall.

Plans have been in the pipeline for some time and the Lodge - 749 - have submitted a formal application to construct a new building a short distance from the existing hall which has served the Loyal Orders and band for scores of years.

Members are hoping that planners will give the proposal the thumbs-up.

Brethren at the Lodge feel the time is right to move forward and create a building which will accommodate a multitude of events and be available to all sections of the community.

The Hog Roast is just one of a number of events being planned to help the Lodge reach their target.

The venue - Gardner’s Farm - is regularly used for social events and the Stranocum Lodge are confident of a good turn out on the night - just three days before they celebrate the Twelfth of July in Ballycastle.

Tickets cost £12 and for that there will be a good meal and dancing to Freefall, a group who have gained a reputation for catering to all tastes in music.

Tickets are available from Allister Stewart, David Wright or Jack Anderson or at Jim McFadden’s shop in Stranocum. Patrons can pay on the night as well.

A free bus service will be available leaving from The Imperial Bar in Ballymoney from 7 p.m. onwards on the night.
