Last year the Connswater Community Greenway team had an open call for pictures taken along the Greenway to be used for the 2016 Connswater Community Greenway Calendar. There was a great response with many wonderful pictures submitted. The public were then asked to vote for their favourites on Facebook with the winning photos being chosen for inclusion in the calendar and the photographers winning prizes kindly sponsored by Connswater Shopping Centre and Retail Park

Now on sale, ‘Caught One More Time’ is a beautiful limited edition 60-page book commemorating Van’s 70th Birthday Cyprus Avenue concerts in August as part of the EastSide Arts Festival.

Over 2000 copies of our new guide for parents, developed for EastSide Learning, have been delivered to the primary schools across East Belfast.

‘Stepping Up’ is a set of leaflets designed to help parents whose children are making the transition to secondary school. It is modelled on the very popular ‘Helping your child to do well at school in East Belfast', a similar resource for parents; designed to assist them at the start of their child’s school journey.

Works on the Connswater Community Greenway move full steam ahead with great progress on multiple sites across East Belfast.
