Limavady Borough Council’s 42-year history will be acknowledged with a fireworks display at Roe Mill Road playing fields on Saturday 21st March.

The “legacy event” will mark the end of Limavady Borough Council as a local government administration, ahead of local government reform on 1st April, 2015, said a spokesperson.

Limavady Borough Council will join with the Ballymoney, Coleraine and Moyle council areas to create the new Causeway Coast & Glens Council.

The fireworks display in Limavady - which is free to the public and open to everyone - will start at 7pm.

Outgoing Mayor, Councillor Alan Robinson – who also sits in the new Causeway Coast & Glens Council – said the fireworks display gives local people the chance to mark the end of an era.

He said: “The historic impact of Limavady Borough Council will be noted for many years to come and we look forward to advancing our borough into the future with the introduction of the Causeway Coast & Glens Council.

“I trust that the entire community will enjoy this fireworks display, which will mark the end of our local council here in the Roe Valley.”
