Bridges Family Practice on Newtownards Road has undergone a major redevelopment to become a state of the art facility thanks to £1 million funding secured by Landmark East (now EastSide Property) from The Northern Ireland Executive’s Social Investment Fund. A vital community asset, Landmark East celebrated the completion of the building today and launched ‘Starlings’, a specially commissioned artwork for the building.

Local artist Deirdre Robb, from Creative Exchange Studio was commissioned by EastSide Partnership to develop a piece of art for the new Bridges Family Practice building exterior on the Newtownards Road.

The Connswater Community Greenway (CCG) team is recruiting a Communications and Administration Officer to support the development and delivery of the project.

This is a great opportunity for someone with experience in a communications role.

We are delighted that EastSide Arts has been shortlisted for a Northern Ireland Tourism Award 2016 in the Best Event/ Festival category for the Van Morrison: Live on Cyprus Avenue event in August 2015.

Earlier this year the EastSide Partnership, in association with Belfast City Council, launched a campaign to name three bridges and a major new pathway as part of the Connswater Community Greenway. The public put forward their suggestions and a panel of judges then selected the top 2 under each category which went out to public vote last month.
