On February 22nd Carter Wickham, Odhran Feeley, Conor Fay, Tiarnan Blair and Tiernán O'Flaherty attended the Northern Ireland Youth Forums Youth Congress at Stormont.
During this event the boys got the opportunity to debate multiple issues in the Stormont Chambers. Odhran and Tiarnan spoke about Discrimination in our communities and the issue of an Irish Language Act. Carter and Conor spoke about multiple topics including Mental health and abuse of social media.
The chambers were full of young people who wanted to express their feelings about issues which effect them. We hope to attend an event like this again and the boys have pledged to support the Youth Forum's proposal for a NI youth assembly.

Live Here Love Here Awards Celebrated Local Community Heroes
Belfast, 21st February 2018: Last night was an evening of celebration as Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful hosted the second Live Here Love Here Community Awards in Belfast Harbour Commissioner’s Office, sponsored by ISL Waste Management Ltd. The event, compered by Lesser Spotted Ulster star Joe Mahon, was filled with inspirational tales from volunteers who have and continue to instil pride in our local communities through practical environmental action.
The fourteen award winners, aged 5 to 77, showed that caring for your local environment and working to make a change is a passion that spans all generations. From regular litter picks to the creation of shared community spaces these unsung heroes dedicate their time and efforts into making where we live cleaner, greener, safer and more sustainable.
The awards celebrated work such as litter picks, community involvement and going above and beyond all expectations. The bespoke award pieces, handmade out of recycled materials, were created using unplugged methods by David Keys Sustainable Woodcraft.
