Council turns the Christmas lights out again in Crumlin

Sinn Féin Councillor for Crumlin, Anne Marie Logue, has stated that Crumlin residents are shocked at the slight of hand by Council in the delivery of Christmas street lighting for the town.

Speaking today Cllr Logue said:

“Christmas 2018 saw no tree, no Christmas lights and no Christmas spirit from Antrim and Newtownabbey Council for the town of Crumlin.

“Residents and traders were rightly angered and mounted a strong campaign, supported by myself, to oppose the decision to exclude Crumlin. As a result of this campaigning Council said it would review and we were informed that Crumlin would be included in 2019.

“However once again, Antrim and Newtownabbey Council have stolen the joy from Christmas with a slight of hand. They have only this week, six weeks out from Christmas stated that they will only be supplying a tree and lights for the tree and none of the traditional street lighting for the Main Street of the town.

“While I have welcomed the fact that we are to get a tree it is simply not enough. The residents and traders of Crumlin deserve better.

“I have raised this issue at all levels of the council right up to, and including, the Chief Executive to express my anger at Crumlin, once again, losing out. It is not good enough.”
