Alliance Causeway Coast and Glens Councillor Chris McCaw has said it was a privilege to attend the first regional Armed Forces Day in Coleraine.
Councillor McCaw was speaking after turning out at the service on behalf of Alliance. He said the service at the town’s war memorial was a fitting tribute to the armed forces.
“Today was a great chance to pay tribute to serving and former members of the armed forces, as well as those no longer with us. It was a privilege to attend on behalf of Alliance,” he said.
“It was fantastic to see the buzz around the town and I hope traders benefitted from the thousands of visitors who came to Coleraine today.
“I would like to congratulate the organisers for their hard work in organising what was a fantastic event for all the family.”
