Mayor’s Show review

BALLYMONEY Borough Council is considering a review of the Annual Mayor’s Show.

The issue was raised after the Director circulated Leisure Services Business Plans for 2012/13 including Leisure Management incorporating Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre and Sports Development Unit, Museum Business Plan and Arts Business Plan.

Alderman Bill Kennedy requested a review of the Show, saying he would like the whole event (entertainment and music) to be kept at Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre where both families and older generations can be catered for, rather than providing the entertainment in the town centre.

He queried the impact of the event on trade in the town centre.

The Director shall place the item on the Agenda for next months’ meeting and will provide information on breakdown of cost and number of exhibits.

It was proposed by Cllr Robert Halliday and seconded by Alderman Cousley that Council approve the Leisure Services Business Plans 2012-13.
