Cookstown and Western Shores Area Network (CWSAN) is a community umbrella organisation which was formed in 1996 to represent and support the interests of community groups within the rural areas of Cookstown District and along the Western Shores of Lough Neagh. Since 2014 CWSAN has partnered with COSTA to ensure coverage for all of rural Mid-Ulster. We also operate an outreach office from the Rainey Centre, Magherafelt. The network aims to co-ordinate the activities of groups in the area through a range of support measures which include training, facilitation, information access, brokerage and consultation.

Speak up for your Parks! Have your say and let us know what your local Park or Green Space means to you!

For many of us lockdown highlighted the importance of our Parks and Green Spaces, as they offered us a haven during a very difficult time.

Throughout October Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful will be celebrating the award winning parks and green spaces across Northern Ireland and we would like your help us!

We would love to hear about the role your local park, community garden or area of open space played for you, your family and your friends. Whether it is a few lines, a quote or even just one word which you feel describes the space we would love to hear about it!

We hope to then feature responses on our social media pages during a themed week in October.

All you need to do is send us an email with the name of a park or green space and a little bit information on what the role the Green Space(s) played during lockdown. Pictures of the park or green space are also very welcome.

Please send emails to Jamie.miller@keepnorthernirelandbeautiful.org
