SAFETY FIRST FOR RURAL SCHEME
The recently completed Dromara Village Renewal Scheme has put the safety of local schoolchildren top of the agenda. The project which was delivered by Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council saw the extension of the pedestrian footpath from the main road to allow safe access to the primary school and the towpath.
