He said: “These visits took me to all corners of the Borough and have allowed me to find out more about the tremendous work that has been going on. On behalf of Council, I want to offer my sincere thanks to all those who work so hard to look after their vulnerable neighbours, especially in these recent difficult times.

“In Causeway Coast and Glens we are fortunate to have a very active community and voluntary sector, which consistently does all it can to improve the lives of our residents. When the social impact of the coronavirus pandemic became apparent, its role was made even more important and we are so grateful to those who stepped up and put themselves forward to help.
