Quarry warning from 
Minister

Environment Minister Alex Attwood has again urged a summer effort by the public, especially teenagers, to stay away from disused 
quarries.

The renewed warning comes weeks after 
Ballymoney Borough 
Council discussed recent tragedies which promoted
 the Minister’s statement.

Councillor Philip McGuigan had raised the matter and asked how many quarries were in the Ballymoney Borough.

The summer campaign will see new signage at known dangerous quarries, posters, social media and a big push to raise understanding of the scale of the threat and d
anger.

“Stay Out! Stay Safe!” - the Minister said.
