It has been a privilege for me to have been Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant for the County of Antrim since 2008.
During this time, I have had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people but in particular Young people from across the County and the Borough of Antrim and Newtownabbey.
I am simply thrilled that as I commence a new chapter in life the Council has created this bursary scheme in my name. This is not only a fabulous opportunity for the youth of the Borough but an opportunity for me to continue to meet inspirational young people whilst supporting them to believe, achieve and succeed.
I look forward to playing my role in awarding bursaries to talented musicians, committed youth volunteers and schools delivering special education. The youth of this Borough represent the future and I cannot think of a more worthy investment than supporting them achieve their full potential.
