Council Buildings to be lit purple

Published: 4th October 2016

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is illuminating two of its properties purple over the weekend, from Friday 7 – Sunday 9 October to recognise Purple Flag Weekend.

 

Strule Arts Centre, Omagh and Enniskillen Castle will be lit purple to raise awareness of the Purple Flag.

 

The Purple Flag Purple Flag, which is awarded by the Association of Town and City Management (ATCM) is a town and city centre award – similar to the Blue Flag for beaches – which recognises excellence in the management of the evening and night-time economy, providing a vibrant and diverse mix of dining, entertainment and culture while promoting the safety and wellbeing of visitors and local residents.

Omagh and Enniskillen are two of only five towns in Northern Ireland to have been awarded Purple Flag status.

 

The lighting up of Council buildings to mark specific days of significance is just one way in which the Council may provide support to a particular charity. Enquiries regarding illuminating Council properties and charity support should be made to Louise McLaughlin, Community Services, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council by telephoning 0300 303 1777 or emailing louise.mclaughlin@fermanaghomagh.com.
