On Friday 8 May, our three civic buildings – Mossley Mill, Antrim Civic Centre and Ballyclare Town Hall – will be lit up red to mark VE Day 75. In additional, replica poppies will be placed on our Borough’s War Memorials in Antrim, Ballyclare, Glengormley, Randalstown and Whiteabbey to pay tribute to those who lost their lives during World War 2. These memorials will be visible to our residents taking daily exercise in our parks, open spaces and pathways.
