From 18th - 22nd November the fifth annual C.S. Lewis Festival will celebrate the impact and legacy of one of the world’s literary greats - C.S. Lewis. At this year’s festival everyone is invited to be ‘Surprised by Joy,’ a theme taken from C.S. Lewis’s works of the same name.

The Royal Town Planning Institute's (RSUA) independent panel of judges have selected 10 great places from across Northern Ireland shaped by planning and planners, from over 50 nominations.

We're delighted to say that Connswater Community Greenway has been shortlisted as one of those 10 great places. We're honoured to be nominated alongside other great places like The Mournes and The Giants Causeway, especially as the project was only completed this year. 

Connswater Community Greenway in partnership with Netball NI are holding a number of netball sessions in Avoniel Leisure Centre on Tuesday evenings, 7-8pm through until November.

Come along, learn a new skill or re-love your favourite school sport! You don't need to register beforehand, you can do it on arrival. 

Cost: £2 donation to Netball NI
