Ulster Covenant Centenary events in the Ards area

(Please forward this post to anyone you think might be interested)

I'm working on a few projects with Ards Borough Council to commemorate the signing of the Ulster Covenant in the borough back in September 1912. I've been asked to publicise these two related events:

Talk: 'The Covenant and its Legacy' by Dr David Hume
Monday 17 September at 7pm in the Town Hall, Newtownards
Admission is free, but please register by emailing Ursula Mezza, Public Relations Officer - click here

Community Church Service
Friday 28 September at 10am in St Mark's Church, Newtownards
Members of the public are welcome to attend.

The projects I am helping with are nearing completion, with lots of local 'buy-in' from across the borough. The research team have found some brilliant stories which have been forgotten over the intervening years, and some of which are very important for today's generation.

More info to follow here over the coming weeks.
