Sinn Féin councillor Elisha McCallion has called for planning to start now for festive activities in the city for next year.
Colr. McCallion, chair of the Council’s development committee, urged Ilex, statutory bodies and members of the public to bring forward ideas now in order to fully plan next year’s programme of events.
The colr. said it was unfortunate that a suggestion for an ice rink was made too late to be in place for the Christmas celebrations, which are already planned.
