Mid Ulster MLA Keith Buchanan has said the successful application for the “Connecting Pomeroy” project represents a massive step for the village and will transform community facilities. In excess of 5 million pounds the award has been made under the Peace IV Shared Space programme.
Welcoming the announcement Mr Buchanan said, “This announcement today has only come about following a lot of hard work. I have worked alongside a number of the groups, community representatives and Mid Ulster District Council who made up the overall package, and I know just how much time and effort has gone in to make this a reality.
The work to be carried out at the Presbyterian Church Hall and creating new Church of Ireland facilities, local school improvements, creating new and improved Sports amenities in the village will transform the facilities available for the community. Alongside the educational centre and the upgrade to the streetscape in the town, it is a massive step forward and can truly transform Pomeroy.
There is still a lot of work to do however in making sure all these plans become a reality. I look forward to continuing my work with the community in Pomeroy and ensuring this financial offer can be as successful as it has the potential to be.”
