Statement by Bannside TUV representatives, Alderman Stewart McDonald and Deputy Mayor Cllr Timothy Gaston:
“We are absolutely delighted for all those involved in Ahoghill’s preparations for the Communities In Bloom awards. Not only were they winners in Northern Ireland, they have now tasted success in the national awards held in Canada.
“Ahoghill received 5 blooms, the maximum that can be awarded to any one entry. The village was also given special recognition for Positive Partnerships in honour of how the whole community worked together.
“Ahoghill is now known on the international stage, which is some going!”
“Congratulations to everyone and start looking forward to next year!”
