8 Oct 2018
News that the Department for Communities has announced Neighbourhood Renewal Investment funding of £781,836 for a new community facility in Rosemount has been widely welcomed. The funding will go towards capital costs of demolishing the old Rosemount Resource Centre and building a new modern community facility which will be located in the Rosemount area of Derry. Sinn Féin representative Hayleigh Fleming said this was great news for the local community: “This is welcome news for the Rosemount area. "It comes at a time when we have also seen massive investment in Brooke Park and the Creggan Burn which has added greatly to the regeneration of the entire area. “We also look forward to plans for a new community centre in the Glen becoming a reality. SDLP MLA Mark H Durkan also welcomed the announcement. The MLA for Foyle commented: "This new space will make a positive contribution to the community. "The new centre will provide a space for programmes such as a Men's Health Shed, Fishing Club, Reading Club and various 'Healthy Minds' programmes. "I commend all those included in this successful funding application and the fantastic community work that is carried out in the area."
